THE KNOBS DIMENSIONALLY. THE KNOBS IN ORDER ARE: 100 YEAR OLD ORIGINAL
KNOB, THEN POLISHED KNOB, NEXT SATIN FINISHED KNOB, AND FINALLY AN AGED
IN THE 2ND PHOTO WE HAVE AN SATIN AGED NEW PRODUCTION MACEY® KNOB (ON THE LEFT) FOR COMPARISON TO THE SECOND KNOB, WHICH IS THE NEW FACTORY RE-RELEASED AGED BURNISHED KNOBS. THEY ARE ESSENTIALLY INDISTINGUISHABLE DIMENSIONALLY WHEN INSTALLED. THE FIRST PHOTO ILLUSTRATES EITHER ONE OF THE KNOBS WITH THE POSTS THAT YOU WOULD BE RECEIVING (YOUR CHOICE). INSTALLATION IS
MADE A BREEZE IF THE DOOR IS PER-DRILLED WITH A 5/32" BIT IN A HAND
DRILL, AND THEN DRILLED DOWN 3/8". IT MAKES PENETRATING THE 100 YEAR
OLD OAK MUCH EASIER. INSTALLED
THEY ARE CLOSE TO IDENTICAL TO THE OTHER ORIGINAL KNOBS YOU MIGHT
STILL HAVE ON THE CASES. HOWEVER, THERE WERE 3 DIFFERENT KNOB SUPPLIERS
THROUGH THE YEARS FROM DIFFERENT VENDORS SO WE CHOSE THE BEST CAST
KNOB EVER PRODUCED THAT MATCHES 90% INSTALLED ON THE KNOBS OUT THERE ON
SHOWS THE AD REGARDING MERGER OF THE GLOBE WERNICKE® AND MACEY® COMPANY TO THE MACEY-WERNICKE® COMPANY IN 1904. THEREFORE THE HARDWARE IS THE SAME BUT WE HAVE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT MORE ACCURATE AGED MACEY KNOBS ON HAND IF THAT IS THE BRAND YOU ARE MATCHING. JUST LET US KNOW.
For sale: A SINGLE, 1, (ONE) of the NEW PRODUCTION FACTORY
RE-RELEASED AGED/BURNISHED OR SATIN FINISHED knob from the actual Globe
Wernicke® Macey Corporation (Globe Wernicke® acquired Macey in 1904 and was
MACEY-WERNICKE® for a time- see 3rd photo
of 1904 factory Macey-Wernicke® ad for
reference). THE PRICE IS FOR A SINGLE KNOB IN THE SATIN OR AGED BURNISHED
FINISH OF YOUR CHOICE AND SCREW IN MOUNTING STUD. The default knob mailed is the aged/burnished knob unless we hear otherwise from the buyer. In the second photo of the 2
different finishes: the one on the left
is the Satin finish, the second knob is the Aged/Burnished finished knob. THE
SATIN KNOB HAS A MORE UNIFORM MATCHING SMOOTH FINISH. THE AGED/BURNISHED KNOBS
HAVE VARIATIONS IN FINISH COLOR AND TEXTURE WITH WHAT APPEAR TO BE SMALL
IMPERFECTIONS DUE TO AGE. The Satin knob is for more of a clean exacting
matched finished look. The Aged/Burnished look just like aged antique originals
as reported in feedback from buyers. THESE KNOBS ARE EXACTING TO FACTORY
ORIGINALS! The knobs we are offering are one of the most common styles that
were used. They measure 9/16" Diameter across the Top, by 7/16"
Height projection, by 3/8" across the bottom of the base of the knob. Macey had 3 original knob styles. We have the
other 2 Macey styles currently in the works for re-release.

Wernicke® we have several other eBay knob listings for the Globe Wernicke®
Macey cases to cover all possible restoration needs. We are offering fresh off

quality of material is equivalent/superior to our original 1900 releases. There

the years of production. They came from different suppliers over time, but they
were all close to this predominate size knob being offered here. OTHER BOOKCASE

REGARDING THE AGING PROCESS. Many think that the process of
getting that perfect aged look of these knobs through Aging and Burnishing is
easy. It is NOT. I can't begin to tell you of the hours, money, equipment and
injuries invested in getting it right. To get that perfect aged look to your
antique Macey Globe Wernicke® stacks we:
start with a Polished knob (2nd Photo for reference), then soak the knob
in strong stripper for a week to remove the baked on hardened lacquer finish
off. The Polished knobs with their baked hardened lacquer coating will probably
never age (SERIOUSLY). Then the knobs are fine wire wheeled, fine cloth high
buff wheel polished with compound, cleaned with thinner, then put into the acid
aging solution for just exactly the right amount of time. They are then allowed
to dry for 24 hours. Next they are wiped down by hand, then lightly Burnished
on a high speed cloth buffing wheel (dry) to give that perfect luster Burnished/Aged
look OR hand buffed at this point for that Satin look. Because of the
exhaustive work involved we perform this process in batches of Fifty knobs at a
time. There may be a wait time if we are in between batches. The total process
takes about 10 days. We use these very
same Aged/Burnished or Satin knobs on our own inventory of cases. They look
fabulous installed and matching in size. The aged/burnished finishes vary just enough to give
the entire stack installation a flawless, authentic to original look. Whether it is a 100 year old knob or our new re-released aged/burnished knobs no two finishes are identical. If you want close to identical finishes the satin knobs are the best choice for this or the polished knobs. The SATIN knobs will not match the finish of an original aged installed knob from 1900. Often the stack units have been "married together" over time as
more books were added to the library. That often resulted in a diverse
different style of knobs (and aged finish) on different sections. This is picked up by admirers
(buyers?) of your stack. We universalize all our stacks and libraries. In our
experience the Aged/Burnished or Satin knobs look best on the Oak stacks in
Walnut stains (the predominate stain on 80% of all units produced). The
Polished brass looks best on the Fumed Oak, Golden Oak, Mahogany stained Oak,
True Mahogany and Mahogany stained Birch units. These are all the standard
stain options offered by the Globe Wernicke® Macey Corporation. See our other eBay ad for the Polished brass
versions. Everyone has their own preference and now we can meet your individual
tastes no matter what your preferences are.
