Penn Antique Restoration Vintage Sargent Bronze Entry Door Set Knob Plate Lock

Strong, vintage, exterior door set made by "Sargent & Co." of New Haven, CT during the 20's or 30's. The set consists of 2 bronze knobs, 2 bronze escutcheons, 1 steel mortise lock with bronze faceplate, 1 brass strike plate for the door jamb, 1 spindle with 2 setscrews for the knobs, and 12 bronze screws for the rest of the parts . All bronze/brass parts are solid, heavy, thick, cast bronze/brass, not stamped or plated iron.
