After more than a century, the "Griffin" is back by popular demand. Introduced by Sargent Hardware around 1900, this extraordinary push plate features an impressive array of French Classical ornament. Mount them in pairs on a pivoting door, or in conjunction with the Griffin entry handle (the pull is mythical winged lion!) on a non-latching door. Hand-crafted in the USA, our exacting reproduction is lost wax cast in solid bronze, then hand-finished with our living antique patina. The bronze is not lacquered and will darken further with age, developing subtle highlights with use.
