The diminutive No 1060 knob, based on a mid 18th-century American design, was often used to operate surface mounted rim locks in country estates and town houses in the United States and Great Britain. A steel pin that is ground flush with the surface is embedded in the center. The graceful curve of the shank broadens to an ogee, which sits within the cove-shaped rose. Full mortise entry locks, privacy locks, passage latches, as well as tubular latches can be provided for use with this knob. The design is best finished in polished or burnished brass, which contrasts the steel pin, though a wide selection of Nanz plated and patinated finishes is also available. It measures 1-3/4″ in diameter with a projection of 1-7/8”.
