Can anyone date this door hardware?
I have the same type of door hardware on all the upstairs doors in my 1857 home. They are all painted over with several coats of paint, and I can't make out the name that's on them. I think they're black under all that paint, or at least that's what color they appear to be in the few spots where paint has been scratched off. The doorknobs are all white porcelain. Do you think these are from the 1850s, or are they later?
(I'm hoping my link works...I've been having a heck of a time trying to post images here lately. If it doesn't work, sorry!)
