These beautiful Ebony Beehive Door Knobs are turned from real ebony and have been verified by Kew Gardens. Unlike ebonised door knobs, using real ebony produces a truly smooth, elegant finish that really does look stunning. As these are turned, slight nicks in the wood are normal and add to the character.
The ribbed rose is cast from brass and left unlaquered so that it ages and develops a really rich, warm patina with time.
They have been made to suit both mortice or rim locks and latches, the roses are loose allowing for one to be removed and the knobs are then secured onto the threaded spindle using a Grub Screw. The door knobs are Unsprung, so we recommend that you use 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. Always make a small pilot drill hole and use a manual screw driver to avoid damaging screws and finish.
