Please forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong group, using the wrong vocabulary, or asking questions that have been asked before -- I'm really know very little about this and I researched as best I could before asking!
We are restoring our apartment, and we decided to keep our vintage glass doorknobs. Unfortunately, the roses (the metal donut which the knob sits in -- do I have the name correct?) that we have are flimsy and cruddy looking. We tried to buy new roses from Rejuvenation Hardware, and found some nice ones, but the opening is too small to accomodate the doorknobs
-- the opening is 5/8 inch, whereas the original roses have an opening of 11/16 inch.
My question is, what our our options? Is it possible to find roses with the larger opening anywhere, and if so where? (I guess salvage stores are one place to look, but we've tried every store in New York...) Another option we were considering was having the ones that we have cleaned up and refinished, but it would be nice to get new ones...
Second question: we need new keyhole covers for the keyholes in the mortise locks. The keyholes won't actually be used but they're part of the look, of course. Is there a good place online (or elsewhere) to look for these?
Thanks much for any help.
