A pair of Victorian style door knobs with a "beehive" design in solid brass.

High quality, hand turned, solid brass door knobs/handles made to an original Victorian beehive design.

These Victorian beehive door knobs/handles have been faithfully reproduced from an original door knob we were fortunate to salvage and are therefore a design exclusive to us, despite there being many copies on the market.

This style was very popular from the Victorian period (c. 1837 - 1901) right up to today and because the door knobs come with separate rose plates they can be used on either mortise or rim locks.

These door knobs have that genuine period look and would really enhance and make a feature of any door.

Key Points
  • High quality design taken from an original door knob salvaged by us.
  • Solid brass handles hand turned and aged.
  • Each set comes complete in its own box with door knobs, steel spindle, all fixing screws, hex head steel grub screw and individual Allen key for fitting grub screws.
  • Brass is not lacquered so will mellow further and develop a wonderful patina.
  • All fixing screws are hand aged to match.
  • The threaded steel spindle is grooved and threaded either end for fine adjustments. This is known as "The Pitts Mortice System".
  • Spindle also comes with a removable collar if existing lock housing is slightly smaller.
  • All grub screws now made from steel for durability.
  • Suitable for indoor use only.
Dimensions:  Please see specification section below
Specification for Victorian style brass beehive door knob *
Metric Imperial
Door knob projection 70mm 2.75"
Door knob diameter 49mm 1.93"
Rose plate diameter 51mm 2.00"
Spindle length 103mm 4.00"
Spindle diameter 8mm 0.31"
Max door thickness 40mm 1.56"
* As these door knobs are handmade and finished, the above specification should act as a guide only.

Required Tools:

  • Screwdriver for wood screws
  • Allen key (included) for grubs screws
  • Pencil
(Always ensure you use the correct size screwdrivers)
DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN GRUB OR WOOD SCREWS OR USE POWER TOOLS AS THIS MAY RESULT IN FITTING SCREWS BEING DAMAGED.

Check assembly and that all parts are present before starting.
You should have x2 door knobs, x2 rose/back plates, x1 universal spindle with slide off packer, allen key for grub screw and fitting screws for rose plates.

  1. Insert spindle through door latch mechanism, ensuring that equal amounts of the thread project to each side of the door. Place x1 rose / back plate over spindle on one side and then screw on door knob.

  2. Carefully tighten grub screw ensuring that the grub screw is located into one of the key way recess's of the spindle and not onto the threaded part of the spindle. Failure to do so will result in the door knob working loose and unscrewing.
    Tighten grub screw carefully, but do not over tighten – ‘nip it up’ using the Allen key.

  3. At this point you must ensure the spindle is level / horizontal. Failure to do so may mean that the door knob assembly will stick during service and may fail or cause the door knob to break.

  4. Secure the rose / back plate by making the pilot holes and then screwing in the wood screws. Again, do not over tighten wood screws.

  5. Insert 2nd rose / back plate over spindle on other side of door and repeat points as above.

  6. Remember that there should be a little play in the door knobs to ensure that they can be turned within the rose plates. Do not over tighten as the mechanism will not operate.

  7. Please ensure that all stained door knobs receive a wipe with a lint free dry cloth to remove any residue left after production.

I received these products v quickly and they are obviously quality & as shown


 Review by:

Excellent

Just what I was looking for to compliment the original 4 panel doors I had fitted in my Victorian flat. Excellent quality, much cheaper than the salvage yard were selling for and I got a whole set of uniform knobs.


 Review by:

Great Quality

Gorgeous door handles, they are really heavy and look the part. They could be genuinely old and look great in our Victorian house. Excellent quality too, I am really pleased with them and will order more.


 Review by:

prompt delivery and my mum likes them!

I had these delivered to my mum's house, because I'm essentially living in a building site for the next four weeks and I didn't want them to get damaged. So I haven't seen them myself. All I can comment on is 1) they were delivered exactly on time and 2) she says they look great. So I'm feeling pretty confident :-)

Victorian Door Knobs - Brass Beehive

Fantastic quality item at a great price. Everyone thought I'd paid a lot more for reclaimed Victorian door knobs. They arrived well packaged the day after I placed the order. I decided I'd prefer the larger door knob and rang customer services. They were extremely helpful and changed them with no quibbles. Would definitely recommend, I am 100% happy with my purchase.

great doorknobs

THESE DOORKNOBS ARE GREAT QUALITY and look fantastic. really happy


 Review by:

Great - but check the sizing

Very happy with the purchase, but hadn't realised that Conventry Demolotion sell two different sizes of Brass Beehive door knobs. These door knobs are about a one cm smaller than the larger ones.

Next time, I'll go for the large ones.

Very well made, supplied with all materials. Very happy.


 Review by:

 Review by:

Quality

I bought 8 of these to be fitted on 1930's internal doors which I have painted black gloss and the doors look stunning! absolutely stunning the handle just lifted the look to what I wanted. A very good quality knob for the price will definately return to the site.


 Review by:

Great Brass Door Knobs and excellent service

I ordered the beehive brass door knobs to go on our Georgian front door which is inside our porch. I could not believe how good the quality is bearing in mind the price. They match exactly an original over size decorative knob in the centre of the door. I also ordered the beehive escutcheons to stop draughts through key hole. Again, very pleased, and everything arrived the next day. Would definitely use this firm again.


 Review by:

Speedy delivery, I only ordered one as a sample because I couldn't believe they were such good value but they are beautifully made, a really good weight and I will be ordering another 16 sets as a result. Fantastic service and product.
Thank you

Fast and reliable

Excellent email follow-up, fast delivery, Product was good quality.


 Review by:

Unbelievable quality!

Arrived home to find half of my door knobs fitted, SO excited! Couldn't believe the quality of these and the colour is a really brassy brass and not a horrible cheap goldy colour. I am very happy and would recommend these to anyone!


 Review by:

Fantastic

We live in a Georgian house with Victorian additions which we bought 38 years ago. About 50 years ago someone had ripped out all the original ceramic or brass door knobs and replaced them with plastic ones!
For these last 38 years we have been searching for brass beehive doorknobs for all the internal doors, and, as we were not prepared to pay the 80 per pair that Hungerford Arcade dealers were charging for them, decided to look on the internet and chanced on your site - at last something that looked right and at an extremely attractive price. We've just bought and fitted 10 sets - easy to fit to our ancient doors, and are at a piece with our house. Thoroughly recommended.
Thanks Alan & Mary.


 Review by:

Good reproduction

Installing this set on a rim latch I was very pleased to note how closely they matched existing reeded knobs in a grade 2 listed Georgian property. Very pleased and good quality castings, would recommend to anyone wanting a reproduction knob set.


 Review by:

Quality & Service 2nd to none, best purchase made in years, cheers


 Review by:

Love them

This was so simple. Found these on line. They looked great. We ordered enough for the house. I was a little nervous buying so many without checking. They turned up really quickly. And the best bit. They look even better in person, and the weight and quality is spot on.


 Review by:

These door handles are absolutely wonderful. I was a bit reticent at first because they seemed a far bit cheaper than elsewhere but be assured they are really good.

They are so good in fact that they actually draw the eye away from all the shoddy DIY I have performed on the door and the surrounding area.


 Review by:

Bought these along with a set of chrome so the chrome handles are inside the toilet and bathroom. Very well made and at a great price, they look great on the doors, finishes them off very well. Would highly recommend and very quick delivery. Will most definetly use again on other purchases.


 Review by:

knobs arrived quickly. very good quality for price. were fitted that day easily. would certainly buy again from this site.

Having seen these online and read the reviews, I ordered some samples. They arrived promptly. Very high quality reproductions at a sensible price. I promptly ordered a large number for the house and a number of other items as well. Highly recommended. Thank you Cov.Dem


 Review by:

Excellent product and service

A very good quality product equal to or better than similar, much more expensive knobs. The order process and tracking are efficient and delivery has been rapid. Can't fault it.

 Review by:

Beehive door knobs

Been looking for this type of door knob for some time but have found them to be quite extremely expensive. Although a little smaller than others I've seen, they are beautiful & are excellent value. Am going to order some more. Delivery was excellent too, within 2 days! Excellent service, thank you.


 Review by:

Great product!

I was amazed at the quality of these knobs, particularly for the price. They have a genuinely period look - unlike many modern copies - and feel hefty and the hand unlike many cheap knobs that cost substantially more.


 Review by:

Exceptional Service & Value

I have some hugely expensive brass beehive door knobs elsewhere in my house but needed an extra one for the kitchen door. As this is not in plain view I didn't feel the need to spend 45 on a single door knob so I went looking for something similar to the ones elsewhere in the house. That's when I chanced upon this item. I really wasn't expecting it to be up to much for the price so I was delighted when I received the item and found that it was much heavier and of far better quality than I'd anticipated. The item was delivered speedily too which was a bonus. It would be nice if this door knob came in an antiqued finish but really I am not complaining as it looks splendid as it is. Highly recommended.


 Review by:

Excellent quality

These are superb - great quality, nice slightly aged look and fantastic value - other places we were looking were over 50 per pair!
With no nonsense ordering and superfast delivery - a winner.


 Review by:

Good quality; value for money

Glad I found this website. These handles were very competitively priced and good quality. Delivery was prompt. Would recommend.


 Review by:

Marvelous!

I purchased these for a Paris apartment to harmonize with other original brass doorknobs.They look splendid. Great value for money and so well finished. Do not hesitate to purchase them.


 Review by:

brilliant product at an unbelievable price.
superb delivery service.
will certainly be buying again.


 Review by:

Great value

Can only agree with all the other reviews. Great product at a great price. Beat's the large DIY stores by a mile. There was one hiccup, no screws & allen key in pack, but young lady at customer services was very helpful & said they would be put in post straight away, which I am sure will happen. Would definately buy from again.


 Review by:

Look the part

These knobs are very good quality for the price. I have white painted panel doors with black rim locks and these look the part. Heavy construction and will be purchasing more to finish the house........


 Review by:

Brilliant quailty, easy to fit and such great value. They make my cheap painted doors look in keeping with my old Victorian house. I ordered them on Thursday and they arrived on Saturday - very impressed! I definitely recommend them!


 Review by:

Excellent quality

We bought these knobs to refurbish our Victorian doors, and must say that as well as being one of the most reasonably priced door knobs, they are of excellent quality and look just the part on our four panelled doors.


 Review by:

Beehive Door knob & Matching Key Covers

I have bought the above Knobs & Key covers and they came within two days of ordering and are really good quality and look absolutely lovely on my newly painted doors. I am waiting for some more key covers to come into stock before I order some more. I highly reccomend them to anyone thinking of changing their door furniture. I think the website is really good also.
