Rated 4 out of 5 by Mema Needs some Hardware
This doorknob was so beautiful, the color, the feel.......... however, it would not fit into my existing doorknob hole. I could have had it adapted for another fifty dollars, but ended up with a lever door handle. (Not nearly as beautiful, but it fit the existing hole in the door.)

I love these doorknobs. I had looked everywhere for something similiar. The Anthropologie prices was actually about one third cheaper.

The door knob really completes a well designed room or closet.
Cons: Doesn't come with install directions and will not fit on standard door latch/locks.
Pros: I'm giving you the information you need to install these beautiful door knobs.
You can either purchase a mortise lock by searching online or you can lose the key entry door knob and get a simpler door latch set with out a key. This hardware is typically used for closets and entries that aren't private or housing any valuables and can be found at home depot. Look for one that will accommodate a closet. I decided I wanted to use this knob on my guest room and there really wasn't anything of value in that room. The mortise lock set will allow you to change the knob and also will give you the ability to lock the door by way of a key hole positioned away from the knob.
