This knob and plate came from an "Eddy" refrigerator of the early 20th century and was arguably made by the Gilbert Lock Company. The black porcelain knob is in very good condition with little wear and no chips or cracks. The cool plate is cast brass and has loads of Victorian vernacular details - including the name "EDDY". The connecting shaft is 1" long and the plate is 1 3/4" by 5". Interesting, rare, and collectible.
