Circa: 1899
Manufacturer: New York Public School


We have a small number of original door knobs from old New York City Public Schools. Over 100 years old. Gorgeous deeply-embossed heavy brass. A few look to be bronze. These are NOT reproductions. 



It's fascinating to think of such artistic care being taken with such a utilitarian item. These gorgeous knobs were very likely one of the most beautiful things in the daily lives of the immigrant children of New York.



We have done nothing to change the finish except to wipe them off. (See all the photo examples). Each knob has its own patina with varying amounts of age. All are in very good used condition. Some people like them darker with a lot of age, some prefer lighter with less age. At this point, we have some of each.

Though we prefer the aged appearance, you can always have them professionally polished to a brilliant shine. We have included one photo that compares a professionally polished know with an unpolished knob. .



What we sell is just the knobs themselves, not the shafts, set screws, etc. We can’t absolutely guarantee they’ll work on your doors, but quite a few customers have been able to use them as working knobs.

Even if they won’t work as door knobs, these are incredible little works of art and look great on a shelf, a desk or used as a coat hook mounted on wood. They also can be used as cane heads and gear shift knobs.

They are heavy and feel terrific when you pick them up.

Size 2.5" x 1.5". Original Public School City of New York door knobs like this are obviously in short supply and we only have a small quantity.

1 knob $160
or
2 knobs $290.

If you would like more than one knob, just email us and we'll enter your order accordingly. Multiple knobs can go in the same Priority Mail small box, which is $7.15.
