need help matching door knobs
rsaundJanuary 14, 2013
Especially having trouble with the silver one. Original to 1929 home. Not sure the metal, don't know style terms to search for... trouble finding skinny knobs. Need total for 5 interior doors, no locks needed. A close match would be ok. The beaded knob is a little easier - I've found a deadbolt that's a pretty good match, but still looking for a regular knob - this one's for an exterior. I've found beaded knob but need to find one with a plain rosette (non-beaded).

You may have some luck with Baldwin on the chrome match...but salvage and plate to match is the way I've had to go in similar situations. No manufacturer name anywhere? And is it rim lock, full mortise latch or tube latch? If cost is an issue, you can do what the previous owner did and go with matching the beaded knob, replacing everything...then put your old knobs on eBay!

You might also take a look at Rejuvenation for reproduction hardware that might suit the period of your home.

I made one very similar to yours around 15 years ago by the Rivera Country Club. The top is the same but the stem and rosette are different. I can make a cutter and turn you 10 new ones. The finish is no problem to match. Cost around $200.00 a knob plus 50.00 per rosette. The rosette is a two part rosette. Could have them in 10 days. I would need a sample.

If the knob is silver - try searching for polished nickel.
