Complete double door entry set cast in bronze with superb quality, was manufactured between 1868 to 1870

There are a dozen pieces that make up this set, they are all rare. All pieces are in excellent condition and made by MCCC

The three large entry plates are one of the best designed patterns ever made and went behind the lion knob in their R&E catalog.

Most all of the pieces contain the manufactures markings and are dated. The four Treasury knobs are well made and heavy, are all entry size.

This is a correct door set designed for a double door. Contains a complete working entry set along with a second stationary set for the second door.

Comes with a huge fancy rabbeted entry lock and matching strike plate with original working key, this is the most difficult part to find in this condition.

The fancy key alone is a large collectable style made of bronze. Most lock faces and strike plates are usually dinged up and scratched from age and usage

This is one of R&E's largest style mortise locks, was made for knobs like the Lion & Doggie knob. I bought this mortise lock with key in non-working condition.

Under all of the tumblers inside the lock I found a part that was upside down keeping the lock from working. After flipping the piece the lock now functions as new.

Basically because the lock never operated it doesn't have any ware and all of the internal parts are still like new. All of the locking functions operate in like new condition.

If my home had a double door this set would be a keeper, making available to the lucky person who has that special Victorian home who would appreciate this amazing door set.

Double doors normally contain flush bolts to secure the stationary door. I can make available if needed. The key is designed to operate from the small escutcheon as pictured.

A rare opportunity to find a complete decorative set made by one of the top manufactures in this pattern, even more rare to find in this remarkable condition. Guaranteed as described.
