Help with hardware

Postby dilettante » Thu May 31, 2007 2:15 pm

I would appreciate help from some of the forum's hardware experts. I am looking for door handles and cabinet pulls that are exact duplicates of those pictured below. This hardware is from a usonian designed in 1951 and built in 1952. The door knobs are Schlage, I believe from the Orbit series, though unlike the standard Orbit, these have inverted sections front and back. The cabinet pulls are of solid brass and duplicate the style and feeling of the door handles.

If anyone can tell me where I can find this Schlage model, I'd be very thankful. As to the cabinet pulls, while I may have these chemically renewed, I'd sure appreciate knowing the manufacturer and model.

Thanks!

They dont seem to have this exact model on their site, but you might want to try calling the good folks at Liz's Antique Hardware.

Echoing the Liz's Hardware suggestion, I'm fairly certain I've seen those in their store and they do a matching service (as well as ship nationwide).

I have seen those same cabinet pulls in other usonians ... if you don't find them through Liz's, try posting this question where other Wright owners chat:
