    NOTES: This door handle works using passage lock/mortise latch door mechanisms. It will not work with modern standard household door mechanisms. So if you want to have a working doorknob, you will need to switch out your existing knob to install this one. Additionally, you will need a replacement handle for the back side of whatever door this is used on as it is not included.

    I would be interested in Config 2! Is there any chance of also getting one where the tail curl attaches to the spindle, rather than the head? Then I could have one on both doors in my Haunted Bathroom....

    I would love a set that goes both directions for my office door.

    Interested pending price on Config 2. Any chance to get the serpent mirrored for the side of the door shown in the picture, with the tail at the rotation point?

    Possibly cold cast resin with brass powder. I have no experience casting in metal.

    Interested pending price, PROBABLY config 1 because I don't have a door I'd want to put it on now, but maybe config 2. I'd have to think about it.

    After an extremely long delay I’m happy to (finally) take orders on the working serpent door handles. I’ve decided to start with a run of 15 and we’ll see where it goes after that.

    So if you’re still interested post the configuration and quantity and I’ll add you to the first run list.

    Those look excellent. And my last place already had mortise style locks!!! I've moved too soon.

    Sign me up for one in configuration #2.

    Thanks,

    Ted.

    Just wanted to check in with you all to see if you were still interested.

    For those who asked about the rotation point, it can be mounted from the head or tail. A right side door handle version does NOT exist, since all doors in the Haunted Mansion are left side open. That said, there's sufficient room to mount it from the head to use on a right side open door.

    If there's any other questions, let me know.

    I am still interested. I think it would add to a nice collection of Haunted Mansion items. Price is right too.

    I guess mounted from the tail. That seems to look the best. Left handed is fine too. Where do I send payment?
