by cre8everyday GORGEOUS!! Won't go unnoticed!
I don't have much to say about this other than I LOVE IT!!!
Everyone that comes over notices and compliments my doorknob. I was a little deterred at first because it's so expensive (you can buy really beautiful glass knobs for a fraction of this price elsewhere), but I'm really glad that I splurged on it.
The only negative thing I could say is that the inside bolt was not the correct size, and I had to go out and buy a longer one. I don't know if this was specific to my door (it's a standard size door, so I don't think it should be...), or if they just selected this size without testing it.
In any case, it's a really cheap part to replace, and well worth the end result : )
(p.s. I had to take the picture with my cell phone, so I apologize if it's a little blurry!)

The spindle that comes with this set is too short (only 3-1/2") for many doors (mine is 1-3/4" thick) and the set does not have standard U.S. threading. My local hardware store couldn't match the threads so I had to go to a locksmith shop to find a replacement--and it was quite an effort for them to go through the bins to find a match. Be prepared to do additional work for this if you are planning to use on a door that is more than 1-1/4" thick.

This doorknob is beautiful, but the backplate is too small to fit over the pre-drilled hole in a standard (US)door. To install, you will have to purchase additional materials (screws, dowels) from a hardware store.
