COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update! 17th April 2020

WE ARE OPEN AND TAKING ORDERS ONLINE AS NORMAL!

Amidst these unusual times, here at The Vintage Door Knob Centre, we feel it is very important to keep connected to our customers and provide support wherever we can.

The government outlined this week that every effort should be made across society to minimise social contact for a further three weeks in order to slow the spread of the virus.

As a company we continue to adopt this policy and this means we continue to have a slightly reduced production capacity so you may find normal services may take a little more time.

As we enter another week, our office staff continue working from home, and those producing your orders are keeping to the social distancing rules and following strict hygiene routines. The health and well-being of our families, colleagues, customers and the wider community is paramount to us, as ever.

WE ARE ANSWERING ALL EMAILS! Therefore, we would like to remind you to email via the website and we will respond promptly to your request.

As we are unable to take direct calls at present, we will use the answer phone to support this message.

Through all of this, we can assure you we remain focused on ensuring you will receive a quality product with the same unrivalled service, whenever you need it.

Stay safe and keep in touch!

Look and feel great in grade II building

He commented: We bought 3 pairs for the doors in our front hallway, and they feel nice and sturdy, and operate smoothly. The colour isn’t a uniform brass, so they do look a little aged which is what we were looking for in our 200-year old Georgian house.

Good solid door knobs
Bought alot of these now they seem to be really good solid brass door knobs at a really good price. I wish I had gone for the smaller size throughout. The large ones are a bit too large and only really fit for big old doors with massive back sets.
Frank Gawthrop,  25 Nov 2023

I bought three pairs of these knobs and they are excellent. Well made solid brass, look great!

Perfect hooks with strength and character!
Iím really delighted with these characterful hooks -they sit perfectly in my Victorian Edinburgh tenement flat , screwed into an original redwood timber panel , creating a vintage cloakroom look in my refurbished hallway . They are strong and sturdy and look like they have been there forever, being so fitting with the character of the flat.

Superb product
What a quality product and excellent value for money. I am a cabinet maker and it suits my hand-made oak doors brilliantly. Delivered in a timely fashion. More than happy. Have bought from this company before and will continue to do so.
