Two door bell buttons on one plate

Hello everyone,

I've done some cursory Googling but I cannot seem to find what I am looking for. I am looking for a source to buy a (reasonably priced) brushed nickel or pewter door bell plate that has two buttons. The application is outside of a common foyer which has doors doing to apartment 'A' and apartment 'B' of a three story house where the basement and first floor make up apartment 'A' and the second floor and third floor make up apartment 'B'. Each apartment would get it's own chime/buzzer, which will be fed off of the common panel in the utility room.

Can anyone help? If they are illuminated or will engrave even better!

Thanks!

How big of a plate can you take? There's certainly nickel plates with 2 button slots for name inserts available but they are about the size of a single gang wall plate.

Pewter finish but not metal?

Here is a link that might be useful: doorbell-double

Saltcedar,

A little too whimsical for my tastes but thank you, it's good to know that they are actually made.

Ronnatalie,

I can go up to that size, do you have a link?

Thanks, both of you.
