Very Unusual Pair of “Cushion” Entry Door Plates by Corbin, c. 1882 NDP51
A rare pair of antique cast bronze exterior door plates in P. & F. Corbin’s “Cushion” pattern, circa 1882, with swinging keyhole covers. When we cleaned the paint off these backplates, we were astonished to discover that these are either silver plated or nickel plated, very unusual for Eastlake hardware. These entrance doorplates feature a background made to look like a puffed cushion, accented with rows of tassels and a pattern of circles. The swinging keyhole covers are ornamented with the same design, featuring a tiny row of tassels across the top. These plates are in very good antique condition; the plating has worn off the lower corner of one plate, showing some bronze underneath. Each plate measures 8” by 2”. The price is for both plates.
