Here's a Vintage brass New York public school door knob from 1900, been trying to add a few unusual door knobs around our 104 year old house and this one catches a lot of attention.

    Gosh, tell that to some kid back in 1900 and they would have told you that you were crazy to put something like this back in your house on the doors.
    Thats a pretty cool thing though.

    very unique - we had those same type pf knobs in our former house - I thought they were wonderful, each one was different.

    This is Great. I have an Entire room that measures 40ft by 12ft that is furnished with only School house items. Love this Knob!

    I remember these from my NYC public school days in the 60s and 70s. Gee, I didn't realize they were so old! Great to see it again.

    I have been searching for a picture of a NYC PS door knob and plate for my website. Would you be interested in sending me the picture to post as part of my website? I work with students with disabilities and am adding my site. If you click on the Parents tab you will learn about the book I am writing for parents.

    Thanks,
