This extremely rare doorknob is believed to be European in origin on account of it's smaller size and shape. It features a deep relief of a man's head, sporting long hair and a mustache, wearing a crown. Scalloped framing surround him. We also have a complimentary knob of shape, size and similar construction featuring a woman's face so we think of these as the Queen and King knobs. The Antique Doorknob Collectors of America have assigned this knob identifier A-32613 but this is the first one cataloged (it is the exemplar picture) and manufacturer or provenance has not yet been established.
