This is a large 2-5/8" bronze Department of Navy knob. Was made around c.1875 & manufactured by Hopkins & Dickinson, a company well known for their high quality hardware. Retains it's original golden finish / patina and is in extremely fine condition & was never shined. This one doesn't surface often. It takes a 3/8" entry size spindle. Normally there is usage wear at the designs around the front & back of the perimeter, this one apparently was on a door that saw little use, as there is no wear. This is a heavy sunken center knob with an anchor in high relief, surrounded by laurel leaves. This would be a perfect knob appreciated the most as a gift to one of our Naval officers.   $625
