Pair of antique figural door plates
 
 
 
 

High quality heavy cast bronze door plates in excellent condition. These are both identical, There are Dolphins on the tops and winged angles on the bottom. Not marked but believe to be produced by Sargent & Co. around c.1900 Both have handles like a night latch. There are small square spindles on both backs that would be used to lock the door. Both were never trimmed. If didn't want to use, or only wanted to use one they could easily be cut off, then the plate or plates would fit flush against the door. These door plates most likely were originally used on double parlor doors. Backs are both stamped with the # A1209. Both measure 9" x 3-1/4" at largest area. Knob socket is 5/8" in dia. Square spindles on back of lock handle are 1/4" x 1-1/2" long and could be cut off if not needed. From middle of knob socket to middle of turn piece is 2-1/2"
