Here we have a Crown Victor brass door spring plaque by Robert Adams, a stunning piece of brass wall decor with some fantastic type face and graphics. This piece dates to the late 1800s and was patented by Robert Adams in 1891. Featuring the inscription "Victor adjustable compensating and silent / Robt Adams / Emerald Street London W.C." and adorned with an engraved imperial crown jewels graphic, the plaque is a true testament to craftsmanship and elegance of even the most mundane items used to have back in the day. 

Door springs, precursors to modern door closers, likely emerged soon after the invention of door hinges. In the UK, various door closer varieties have been found dating from the 17th and 18th centuries. Since the Industrial Revolution, door closers have universally utilized spring mechanisms to store energy produced during door opening, ensuring smooth closure of heavy doors. Early door closing devices drew inspiration from the clock-making industry, often incorporating heavy-duty clock-type springs. Today, this piece would look great hung on a wall as a statement piece or used to add some depth to a gallery wall.
