Details: Rare antique set of brass doorknobs and plates depict the face of “Green Man” Spirit of the Forest god, whose head and face are composed of and surrounded by various foliage.

Set has been polished but still maintain some patina from decades of use. Includes a steel spindle and replacement attachment screws (plus a few extra screws).
