Very Rare Antique Figural Corbin “Empire” Exterior Doorknob Set, c. 1895 NDK69
A very unusual antique figural entrance doorknob set, circa 1895, in P. F. Corbin’s “Empire” design. Unlike the other Corbin Empire knobs we’ve seen, which feature just one animal, this doorknob features a radial center surrounded by three mythical beasts with leafy tails. This doorknob set is nickel plated bronze, also very unusual. The hardware set includes two door knobs with their connecting spindle and set screws. The larger doorknob is 2-1/2” in diameter and 2-1/2” deep; the smaller knob is 2-1/4” by 2-1/8”.
