These knobs and door plates are from a Masonic Temple. Some did a nice job of cutting the doorplate to made a back and bottom of a bookend. Also note how the doorknob is supported by a little length of fluted brass. These plates and knobs are highly ornate, with all manner of Masonic symbols. They are very collectible and not easy to find. Notice the high quality of the casting and excellent condition all the pieces. The book ends measure 8″ x 8″ x 5.5″ wide.
