Product Image Gallery:
Interior steel faced Sargent "Easy Spring" mortise door lock. An interior mortise lock is a lock which is used on an interior door that has been cut with a pocket or hole into which the lock is to be fitted. Interior mortise locks commonly include a doorknob hub, through which a doorknob spindle is installed and doorknobs are mounted on each side and secured into place with pins or set screws; and a keyhole which accommodates an old-fashioned bit or skeleton key which in turn throws the deadbolt to lock and unlock the door. Mortise locks have specific dimensions including backset, the measurement from the edge of the faceplate (the strip that shows when the mortise lock is installed in the door) to the center of the doorknob hub; and spacing, the measurement from the center of the doorknob hub to the center of the round part of the keyhole. The dimensions were not standardized in the 19th century so it is important to note the dimensions of your door prior to purchasing a mortise lock.

In 1810, Joseph Bradford Sargent and his brothers operated a wholesale hardware business in New York City, and later bought out one of their suppliers, Peck and Walter Manufacturing Company of New Britain, CT. In 1864, they moved the factory to New Haven to be closer to the sea for shipping and the delivery of materials. The first New Haven location was owned by such historical icons as Benedict Arnold, Eli Whitney, and the Fulton Steamboat Company. Sargent & Company of New Haven, Conn., produced and sold planes for an eighty year period from 1884 to 1964. By 1914, the Sargent product catalog listed some 60,000 different items, making it one of the largest hardware manufacturing plants in America.

Bathroom Door Pulls

For the French doors on our new bathroom, it was a challenge to find the right door knobs. We wanted a deep blue to match a Turkish ornament in the floor. These knobs were just the right color. As it turned out, using them as door pulls was the right idea, and we love them!

Excellent product & customer service

Despite being backordered, I received my knobs with a fairly quick turnaround. They are heavy and well-made. I'm very happy with these in our kitchen!

High Quality Authentic Appearing Cabinet Knob

Like so many of the repros at Historic Houseparts, this repro is VERY authentic appearing & high quality. Nothing available elsewhere at even close the price.

Forest Green Glass Bridge Pull, Brass Base

PERFECT! I thought I was taking a risk buying from outside the country. I was wrong. The pulls are perfect, just what I was looking for. Makes my kitchen look good. Product, packageing, and shipping all done professionally. I would buy again no problem. Cheers, Jonn

Great item!

Perfect piece for the icebox I refinished that came out of my childhood home! Made the icebox look like it did when it came out of the factory.

Glass Door Knob/Door Plate

Fantastic service, very easy to shop for antique and historic parts (sizes are viewable with the pictures!). Screws came with the door plate and made installation very easy. We are very glad these folks are in business. I will look for more historic parts for our 90+ year old house.

Great find

Most catalogs & stores sell wood knobs of cherry, oak, maple, & sometimes pine. Solid, unfinished walnut is hard to find. Historic Houseparts sells these. They are well made, no defects, & come with screws. Company service is excellent, delivery prompt, exactly as advertised. Highly recommended.

Wow factor

We bought an Art Deco vanity table, that had ordinary round brown wooden knobs. We replaced those knobs with these Bakelite knobs. The look now catches our eyes and has upped the Wow factor of the piece in our bedroom.
