A pair of Victorian/Edwardian ebonised "Bun" style door knobs with brass collars and brass rose plates.

High quality, hand turned, wooden door knobs made to an original design.

These bun style 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 (c. 1837 - 1901) and the early Edwardian (c. 1901 - 1910) periods and remains so right up to today and because the door knobs come with the 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.
  • Hand turned solid rosewood stained handles.
  • Each set comes individually wrapped 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.

Specification for Victorian style wooden bun door knob *
Metric Imperial
Door knob projection 78mm 3.07"
Door knob diameter 58mm 2.28"

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 have been meaning to replace the existing door knobs in our Victorian house with appropriate period reproductions for years. Finally got around to it, and very pleased with the quality and style of these. Excellent value and rapid delivery as well!


 Review by:

Delivery was immediate next day. Very prompt. Product looked similar to how it appeared on the website. Well packaged as well. No complaints whatsoever. Only awkward moment I had was looking for two separate grub screws then it was pointed out to me by my wife that they were inside the handle !

Really pleased with purchase. Arrived quickly, good quality and recommend to others. Would purchase from this company again!


 Review by:

Love the Buns

Prompt delivery, beautiful quality, tremendous value for money, and so much more character and warmth than anything you'd find in a normal DIY store. They aren't a perfect finish, but that's what we wanted: good quality with a handmade vintage feel.


 Review by:

Handles arrived within 2 days of order being placed, exactly as advertised beautiful condition and packaged well with exact screws with instructions couldn't be easier. So much so re-ordered more handles. Would recommend this company highly, great quality product at reasonable prices, will be ordering more in the future.

Exceptional Value

We are renovating the family home that has been virtually untouched or modernised for about 6 generations so we needed various things to match existing as near as possible. After a great deal of online research I came across Vintage Door Knobs. I cannot recommend this company more highly, from my initial enquiry to ordering and delivery. Apart from their excellent product, the door knobs are very well made, they looks exactly like the originals we have. I'm sure you won't find anything that matches them for value/price anywhere.


 Review by:

Good value authentic looking product

My husband was skeptical that a door knob at this price would feel adequately sturdy but he was proved wrong and agreed that we should have these installed throughout our Edwardian house that we are currently renovating. They are not perfectly finished (a bit rough on the knob) but this makes them seem worn and not completely new. They do not appear to be solid brass, although I suspect if they were then the price would be higher. Shipped promptly and well packaged.


 Review by:

Excellent product

The Edwardian door knobs were shipped very promptly and well packaged. They are superb I was very impressed. Only slight criticism is the screws that come with them seemed quite soft so I changed to some of my own when fitting otherwise perfect.

 Review by:

Door knobs - Handles - Victorian - Vintage - Woode

Great value, quality and despatch speed; thoroughly recommended. The handles screw onto the spindle - both are threaded - something often not found on much more expensive door knobs.


 Review by:

Thrilled to find these!

I was thrilled to find these when looking for door knobs for our Victorian flat, which had had them all removed when we bought it. These are perfect. They're solid, look original, and cost about a quarter of the price of the real thing. Very impressed with delivery speed too, thanks!


 Review by:

Excellent door knob and fitments. Have since bought other items for internal doors which are equally as good as is the overall service. Delighted.


 Review by:

Amazing Quality & Value for Money

After scouring the internet for affordable period doorknobs, I bought several of these and I'm so happy I did. They've now been fitted onto my newly dipped and stripped period doors and look absolutely stunning. I still have to source a couple more period doors, but once I do, I will definitely be back to buy more. Highly recommended.

Great knobs - the spindle between the handles is a threaded rod which is great as it gives added strength.

good product

This is a really good product if you are looking to achieve a period look without spending fortunes on ebony originals. Easy to fit and fully adjustable for the rim locks I have. The wood has a really nice tactile oiled (i think) finish. Very happy with them.

Satisfied customer

We fitted 8 pairs of these knobs to some internal doors to replace cheap contract handles that were fitted not so long back. They have been installed 2 or 3 years now and are of good quality and design. Well recommended.


 Review by:

These are good quality large wooden door knobs with brass collar. They look smart and authentic on our period Victorian doors and have a satisfying weight and feel to them.
