Quantity
A pair of Victorian style door knobs with black wooden "beehive" design, nickel collars and nickel rose plates.

High quality, hand turned, wooden 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.

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.
  • Nickel finish to collar and rose plates.
  • All fixing screws also nickel coated 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 wooden beehive nickel door knob *
Metric Imperial
Door knob projection 85mm 3.34"
Door knob diameter 58mm 2.28"
Rose plate diameter 58mm 2.28"
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.

Ebony beehive door knobs

I should also add that delivery has always been fantastic. Ordered them before breakfast and there the next day. Now that's service for you

Ebony beehive door knobs

Have ordered several of these for my house as look great with white doors, greys and blues and lots of comments about them. Wasn't sure about ordering them at first as a large 60s bungalow we were modernising but a friend of a friend who is also an interior designer talked me into it (as she has some) and I am so glad she did. They look fab!


 Review by:

Authentic Victorian door furniture at fair price

I wanted to put our Victorian semi back to its period best. The door knobs are large and generally well made. They were fully adjustable for a perfect snug fit against the door. After the first one, fitting was really swift. I can recommend this product. Just make sure you want a bun handle this large, before ordering.

Very happy with the door knobs


 Review by:

Highly recommended

Ordered 6 pairs with matching keyhole covers on Mon morning, delivered 10 am next day to central Scotland. Lovely quality items look great on my original Victorian doors which had a mix of knobs and damaged or missing estucheons. I found the slotted screws very difficult to get the angle just right to get a flust fit on the rose but this a reflection of my carpentry skills and not the product which is excellent. Will be buying more for the other doors when ready. Thanks.

I love these door knobs. They look classy and work perfectly so I couldn't ask for more. Oh and they are reasonably priced too.

Lovely door knobs - 10 cheaper than I could find them anywhere else and they look great.


 Review by:

Great handles

Great handles which look fantastic in our Victorian home. Was a bit sceptical when I ordered them as they were priced much lower than similar items on line. Very pleased with the items when they arrived. Now ordering more for the rest of our doors.

Beehive doorknobs

I ordered these door knobs after much searching for exactly what I wanted. They were far cheaper here than anywhere else I looked, ther arrived promptly and were as lovely in life as on my iPad. We have yet to fit them as we are renovating our house but I hope to have them in place before Christmas. Thank you for a beautiful product and for such great service.


 Review by:

Great product, very fast delivery and look great on my reclaimed doors. Just what I needed. Much better price than I could find anywhere else, I bought 10 pairs!


 Review by:

These handles are really good quality for the price. I bought one pair at first, worried that they looked to good to be true, but after speedy post service the pair arrived and I was delighted to find they had such a good feel and look. I ordered 5 more for the whole house and the company made sure they were couriered that day so I got them the following. What great service and a lovely product - Thank you !!

Wonderful product. Looks great. Very happy. Prompt service.


 Review by:

Look nice but don't work properly

I am really disappointed with these. I bought 13 for my new house renovation earlier this year, and I thought they looked lovely when they arrived, I was really pleased. In less than six months, however, more than half of them have now got problems. Two have completely sheared off at the base. I have glued them back but they aren't holding well. The others simply won't tighten properly, and come off in your hand. I am not sure what to do now as I now have a house full of doorknobs that don't work and it will cost me a lot of money to replace them. Very sad. I really would advise you to buy something sturdier.

Excellent quality excellent price could not be happier. Do not hesitate in buying these

Excellent handles at a great price


 Review by:

Great purchase! Great value!

As previous reviews have said these door knobs are a great purchase. I surfed the net and found what I thought were a good buy at 5 times the price of these. Fortunately the surfing continued! These door knobs look and feel great. I have replaced 7 existing ones on 2 floors and will probably do the next floor soon. As said previously the screws are a bit of a fiddle. The groove was too narrow for one screwdriver and I had to use a much smaller screwdriver that was too small to apply enough pressure to drive in all the way in. This does not really detract from a great quality product.

Perfect

Ordering and delivery went smoothly and when handles arrived we were delighted with them. Look lovely on original panelled doors in our Victorian home. We thought the price was very good when comparing with similar handles on the internet.


 Review by:

Quality, Value + Service

I ordered 16 Beehive handle pairs + 4 beehive lock covers pairs. The quality is excellent - the handles are weighty. Delivery was speedy. One of the 16 handle pairs was a brass finish by mistake instead of chrome. I rang up and a replacement was sent out immediately accompanied by a friendly apology.
Excellent product. Excellent value. Excellent Service. Would highly recommend - Thank you CDV!

Superb replica Vintage Beehive Door knobs

Bought 5 sets of these while renovating grade ll listed Georgian Victorian house. They look fantastic and even got a 'Wow' from all the trades working with me and they are hard to please!
Great quality craftsmanship and engineering.


 Review by:

Victorian knobs style 6

Excellent value for money! Knobs are lovely, sturdy & are a fair weight. Fully expected these to be cheap & nasty because they are so low priced, but not at all, very very happy. Have had lots of compliments on them. Will be ordering more for upstairs in the future.


 Review by:

Excellent

The door knob arrived very quickly. It is very impressive. Its great value and looks more expensive and is very good quality. The feel of the knob is lovely. We shall be ordering more in the near future as i ordered one just to make sure it was what we wanted. Not disappointed. Thanks.


 Review by:

Very happy

I have just received my second shipment of these, I was so happy with the first lot that I came back for more to replace my existing door knobs. Very nice product at a very reasonable price.
I also have the smaller nickel reeded knobs for the rooms on my top floor, and love those too.


 Review by:

Great product and service...

Really lovely product that looks great in situ. The product also arrived very quickly so all 'round, very impressed. Thanks!


 Review by:

Fantastic

Thank you very much for the prompt delivery of the Victorian Vintage Beehive door knobs. They are a fantastic reproduction, solid and very good quality. They look and feel much more expensive than they are. Our joiner was very impressed with them. We are really pleased with them and they look fantastic on the doors.


 Review by:

Great Door Knobs

I'm really happy with these. I love the design and the fact they are original in style but not too typical. I bought a dozen or so pairs and have used them throughout my Victorian house which I'm in the process of renovating. They look really smart on stripped panel doors and feel expensive though one small niggle is the screws are not that good quality but overall really good value for money and a great product - would thoroughly recommend.


 Review by:

These are absolutely great door knobs! We bought some similar but much more expensive last year, from another supplier and they came to pieces within months. But these door knobs are really well put together and withstand the battering from our children. They are a very pretty design too and are just perfect for our Victorian terrace.


 Review by:

Great Doorknobs

These door knobs are a really good quality and look great on. They are easy to fit. The only fault is the screws which are not of a good quality and just split when trying to screw in, so went out and bought stronger screws, that is the only thing as when these are back in stock I am ordering another batch for my upstair doors!!!


 Review by:

These door knobs are great value and good quality. Look fab on my victorian panelled doors.


 Review by:

Outstanding value for money.

You would pay twice as much if not more for the same quality

Doors look fab.


 Review by:

Black Vintage Wooden Beehive Silver Bezel

These are an excellent product and very well made, the doors look as they should now and go with the period of our house, the finish is good and looks expensive, for the price these are too good to miss, fast delivery and good communication.


 Review by:

Great product. Great price. Brilliant service


 Review by:

I order 3 door knobs yesterday morning and just I received it. The next day. Really impressed with the delivery time frame. I paid 40 to get it delivered to Ireland but its all worth it as it arrived so fast.
They look really great, good quality product, heavy, it feels nice. I can't wait to have them fitted.
Thanks


 Review by:

the knobs are perfect,just what i was after and a great price, the best i could find.very quick delivery too.thankyou


 Review by:

Lovely door knobs that look far more expensive than they are. They give a traditional look with a modern twist, I have used them on reclaimed doors and they look fab. Easy to order + collect.


 Review by:

Great product and speedy delivery

Really excellent product - they are virtually identical to some others I purchased for my last house, except these were over 40 per pair! I was worried they might look cheap but they really don't. Have now purchased in bulk and they are helping to transform a Victorian house back to its former glory.
They arrived the day after I ordered them, which was also very impressive.
Thank you!


 Review by:
