The Real Pewter Pelton Jesmond Backplate Door Knob is a simple ball shape that has the added detail of a raised ring around the circumference. There are 4 functions to choose from:
- Short Latch
- Bathroom – built in privacy turn and emergency release
Designed and made in Co Durham, using the finest lead free, genuine Pewter (min 92% Tin). This gives each product a warm and lustrous quality, making it perfect for both period or contemporary homes.
Hand finished, but left unlacquered, will allow each piece to develop its own unique patina with time and best of all it is hard wearing and easy to care for and maintain. Simply clean with warm, mild soapy water and dry with a soft cloth – never use solvent cleaners or household polishes.
For use with Mortice locks and latches and come Unsprung as standard.
So, we recommend using a Heavy Duty or Heavy Sprung lock or latch which is at least 100mm to give a backset of 75mm or more. This is to ensure that the door knob turns properly and returns to the closed position, and that you do not catch your knuckles on the door frame or striker plate.
We also have a range of co-ordinating cabinet knobs, drawer pulls, lever handles and front door furniture.
Sold as a PAIR and supplied with a spindle and matching fixings. Always make a small pilot drill hole and use a manual screw driver to avoid damaging screws and finish.
