Rosettes porcelain white warded lock small
Matching rosettes The screw holes of the smaller rosette (Ø 4.5 cm/1.77 inches) are 32 mm/0.13 inches apart (center to center), meaning that they do not fit on doors with a German standard distance of 38 mm/0.15 inches. Therefore, we now also offer larger rosettes (a considerable 6.5 cm/2.56 inches in diameter), with a distance between screws of 52 mm/0.20 inches.

Porcelain fittings from Limoges.
The door handles come from Limoges (in the French Limousin), a historical center of enamel painting and porcelain production in Europe. The porcelain used for the handles is smooth-fired at temperatures exceeding 1400°C, making it extremely durable as so-called "hard porcelain". The nickel-plated brass parts are turned from the solid piece and then milled. The models date from the beginning of the 20th century. In contrast to the long escutcheons that are widely used today, our porcelain sets have two separate escutcheons: one for the handle and one for the keyhole. This is especially advantageous for old room doors, which do not adhere to today's standards in terms of distance dimensions. The door handles have a square of 8 x 8 mm, the standard size for today's interior doors. Other square dimensions are available on request. As an alternative to the classic door handle we offer door knobs in olive shape. They originate from a time when ergonomics was not a trendy topic but a matter of course.
