Crown City Hardware exclusive, Signature Series, large “San Simeon” door knob. A gorgeous reproduction of the Yale “Rouen” knob, first produced in 1897 and sold through the 1940's.

We had our eye on the Yale "Rouen" for quite some time, as it's an absolutely beautiful design. We set about collecting the original door knobs and escutcheons, in all the sizes and configurations, so we could bring this set back to market. Once we had the necessary antique originals, we worked hand in hand with a U.S. based foundry to create reproductions of the highest possible quality. We were thrilled with the results, and we weren't alone.

Universal Studios was in the process of rebuilding their legendary backlot around the time we were launching the newly reproduced “San Simeon” sets. We were pleased to discover they appreciated them as much as we did, and it became one of the main hardware sets featured throughout the period facades. Look for it the next time you're watching a film or television show!

Some notes about the “San Simeon” pieces:

  • They are a mix of CNC'd brass, high quality castings, and precision millwork. The detail is impeccable. The door knob, for example, features a two piece design with a solid brass CNC'd body and an extra fine, solid, cast brass medallion for the face.
  • The “San Simeon” is is available in several sizes and configurations, including small (243O), and medium (243P) interior sets, a large entry set (243Q-ENTR), and an entry handle set.
