The art nouveau Avalon pattern dates to around 1900. We recreated the dies and press them in solid brass one at a time using the same techniques of over a century ago. Pair these back plates with our Avalon doorknobs or our glass doorknobs. This pattern is exclusively reproduced by Charleston Hardware Co. These back plates are compatible with antique and new pre-bored doors. They can be used for passage or dummy sets.

Hold the doorknobs level then mark the holes to drill in the back plates.
