These very stylish Aged Bronze Beehive Door Knobs are a heavyweight, solid door knob set, suitable for both mortice and rim locks and latches. Although more commonly found in Victorian/Edwardian period properties, because of their neat shape and size they sit very nicely in many cottage style properties too.
Aged Bronze - this finish is manufactured from solid bronze containing a minimum of 85% copper. Aged with a matt oil rubbed finish, it will initially look very dark. Left unlacquered the bronze will slowly lighten in colour which results in a beautiful, subtle patina. Lightening can be accelerated by hand polishing with a heavy dry cloth. This finish has been salt tested to 480 hours, which meets grade 5 British Standard.
The door knobs are Unsprung, so we recommend that you use a Heavy Duty / Heavy Sprung lock or latch. So that you don't catch you hand on the door frame we also recommend that you use a lock or latch which is at least 100mm, to give you a backset of 75mm or more.
Sold as a pair and supplied with matching fixings and a threaded spindle. The screws supplied are hand finished, so please take care when fixing. Always use a pilot drill.
