We were commissioned by the Historic Charleston Foundation to reproduce this beautiful knob for the Nathaniel Russell House. The house was built in 1803 and is one of the finest homes in the city. The knob has a highly detailed sunburst design and terminates with a turned foot. The rosette is a separate piece. The original was for plantation shutters. It also makes beautiful cabinet and fine furniture hardware. It is available in unlacquered brass, hand antiqued brass and polished nickel.
