Sometimes we are asked if we have any older designs of door handles (We are the Rustic Merchant at the end of the day ) . Our answer is no. There are obviously thousands of deigns for door handles and door knobs, but none of them can be that old.
The door knob / door handle as a door closing device was first patented in 1878 in America by Osborn Dorsey. So all designs stem from that period.
If you are looking for something older than that for holding doors closed then see our range of door latches or thumb latches. We have a good selection of these on the site in various sizes and designs.
