Antique Russell and Erwin Figural Door plate
 

Extra rare, oversize bronze back plate with large mythological creatures on both sides of the key holes Entry size door plate still retains the large key cover with a pattern of an anchor. On the top is a stork drinking from a fountain. This is one of only a few styles made of these jumbo size door plates from the 1870's by R&E. Was never polished with intricate details throughout. One of the best examples I have seen. Is in extra fine condition retaining the original finish. This style doorplate seldom makes it to market free from problems. Measures 9-3/4" x 3-1/8" at largest area. Distance from middle of knob socket to middle of first keyhole is 2-1/2" to second keyhole is 4-1/4" Knob socket is 3/4" in dia. Back is stamped 501
