Kayes Patented Door Handles
A lovely pair of KAYES antique patented antique door handles with a hardwood handle and brass Rose plate. The patent refers to the screw mechanism which keeps the handle on the Rose plate, doing away with washers. We've had style before, but stamped Patent Applied, this pair have their Patent number so we assume they date to a later period, probably early 1900s (1910-1920). Cleaned and polished and the hardwood, refinished and waxed.
