A beautiful pair of Old English Brass Beehive Door Knobs. This is a faithful reproduction of antique original, and the shape is a true 'beehive', rather than a reeded ball. 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.

Old English Brass - we use our own finishing process to gently accelerate the ageing process to develop a natural looking patina. As each piece is hand finished there will be slight differences in the final appearance, this gives individual character to each product and an authentic aged feel. This is a living finish, so it will continue to age with time and use, revealing the metal below to add further character. A layer of good quality beeswax polish is applied prior to dispatch to help protect the finish, this may be repeated periodically if required.

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.
