Large Antique Cast Bronze Branford “Ivy” Entrance Doorknob Set, c. 1886 NDK64
A very large antique cast bronze exterior doorknob set in Branford Lock Works’ “Ivy” pattern, designed by J. J. Kennedy and featured in the 1886 catalog. Probably the largest that we’ve seen, this remarkable door knob set features a dome shape and a concentric design, with stylized flowers and leaves on both the front and back. These Eastlake doorknobs have a lovely natural patina and include the connecting spindle and set screws. The larger doorknob is 2-5/8” wide and 2-3/8” deep; the smaller one is 2-3/8” wide and 2-1/4” deep.
