Antique R&E Japanese Collection Crane Entry Knob
 
 
 
 
 

Made by Russell & Erwin, Shank dated "Pat. June 9th 79" Back is marked Russell & Erwin MFG Co. New Britain Conn. USA This Crane knob is probably the most difficult to find from what is now part of the Japanese Collection. Detail is amazing, the finish has developed a reddish tint from age. The front of the knob, which is mostly the Crane's profile, is blemish free. Over all in amazing condition, only flaw is a very small nick on left side of outer rim where slightly bumped, does not detract from the beauty. there is only a slight sign of normal usage ware, which is on the back. This is one of the better Crane entry knobs I have seen. The entries are seldom found, Not mint, but is in exceptional condition for age.   Price: $600
