A pair of Victorian style door knobs with natural rosewood "beehive" design, brass collars and brass rose plates.

High quality, hand turned, solid rosewood 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.
  • Hand turned natural solid rosewood handles with rich colouring.
  • 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.
  • Due to these door knobs being made of natural solid wood, their colour will vary and the photos are representative only.
Dimensions:  Please see specification section below
Specification for Victorian style rosewood beehive brass 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.

Rosewood Beehive - Brass (pair).

after being told i could get similar to these beauties elsewhere for a lot more, i stumbled onto this site - low and behold, better quality and better priced!! Being fitted as we type!


 Review by:

as advertised

saw some of these in a shop and thought they were exactly what I wanted so ordered them online, what I didn't expect was for them to turn up within 2 days well ahead of eta and they wernt the ones I had seen they were better heavier more robust, if you didn't know better you would think they were very well cared for originals, vo cheap stamped out brass, turned on a lathe great quality


 Review by:

Authentic & Stylish

Very pleased with these victorian door knobs . Look great on our 1930 doors and really look the part. Was not sure if they would work with the rim locks that were on the doors but on telephoning up was informed they would be fine which they were. These door knobs are also great value for money and the quality is good.

Brass and wood door knobs

I was outbid on eBay for six pairs of Bakelite door knobs, at 142 and then my wife was searching the internet and found these. I immediately ordered 10 sets at about the same price as the eBay ones, for six! I have so far fitted three sets and am very pleased at the quality and they really fit in with my 30's house. I would fully recommend these not only for the price but also the quality


 Review by:

I'm a joiner who works with door ironmongery regularly and was very impressed with the quality of these for knobs. Great price also


 Review by:

Victorian Rosewood Knobs style 7

We spent ages looking on the internet and these were exactly what we wanted at an excellent price. We got one first to check the quality and were delighted. The postage was also very fair as posted to us in Ireland and they were great deal with. Very happy!


 Review by:

door knobs

These door knobs were just what I'd been looking for, the rosewood was the colour I needed for the cottage I am renovating to keep its original character.
As I'm undertaking quite an extensive renovation of a building, just short of 200 years old, I was looking for items that would fit exactly into the period of the cottage without that 'Newness' that sometimes comes with recently manufactured items. I am delighted to say I am totally satisfied with the products I purchased and will continue to do business with the Coventry-demolition company. The price and quality are EXCELLENT


 Review by:

I found Coventry Demolition on the internet having spent time looking for victorian bee hive door handle sets on many sites including second hand and ebay
but the all seemed ether not in good condition or very expensive
so i was happy when i found there site
the prices were very good and the delivery also good
So if your looking for the real thing and in perfect order they are the best

Awesome quality, value, attention to detail.

I am delighted with my purchase. The product is beautiful and manufactured with excellent attention to detail. The brass fittings are heavy and substantial and the colour and reeding on the knob are perfect. I was also really impressed that each pair is not only accompanied by a little bag for the screws and an allen key for the grub screw, they were really well packaged too, wrapped and boxed. My doors have been transformed by these door knobs, I can't recommend them highly enough.


 Review by:

Great quality and value

These are really lovely. I couldn't believe they'd be good quality at such a low price so I ordered one as a test. They are perfect, great ŵeight, quality materials. We are waiting for them to come back in stock, planning to order another 13 sets.


 Review by:

As the box says

 Review by:

great product and service


 Review by:

Very happy. Excellent quality and look great on the doors


 Review by:

Good size and comfortabel to use. Good size when hands very cold /wet. Am buying more to complete all house doors. Only problem was the metal shim wasn't tight on the handle spindle and required to be pressed tight to handle before fitting to,original locks.


 Review by:

Very pleased with the product

These handles are excellent value - well made and beautifully finished. As good as others twice the price, prompt delivery, would have no hesitation in using the company again.


 Review by:

nice but not sure about the screws

I feel fairly neutral with regards to this product.

The product itself is good but for some reason the screws supplied with it seem to have little to no relevance to the material used. Basically, the screws are a rusty dark coloru and not brass like the handle.

It could be that the brass will weather with time to a horrible dark and worn finish as opposed to mellow. I certainly hope not and in the mean time will go and source some brass screws from a local diy shop.

In summary, product is nice but don't feel the screws that come with them some be of identical material to the handles.


 Review by:

Beautiful product

Beautifully made and will look amazing on the door once it has been painted. Will definitely be ordering more...

Ordered Victorian (Beehive style) door handles after doing a lot of research online.
Really competitive pricing from Coventry, excellent service and the product is of a very high quality.

 Review by:

Great quality handles- better than any I have seen - lovely richness to the wood- look fab with my Georgian doors and art deco finger plates!


 Review by:

Nice handles

We are renovating a Victorian house & had been pretty lucky sourcing original handles but then they became almost impossible to get so we turned to reproductions.
These handles are very nicely made. Really sturdy & very reasonably priced. I bought 3 pairs so that 3 doors on to the hall now all match!!
Service was very quick too.
Would highly recommend this company.


 Review by:

 Review by:

Beehive door knobs

These door knobs are a fantastic weight & the brass looks a warm, old fashioned colour (not like modern, nasty, shiny brass). We haven't fitted them yet, but they look perfect for our Victorian renovation project. The delivery was swift too.


 Review by:

Great service, goods promptly delivered and as described - Would certainly use again!


 Review by:

4 x Vintage - Wooden - Beehive - Brass

Good prompt service.
Handles pretty good quality, some black paint was missing in one or two of the grooves, but this wasn't a problem as I was fitting to rim locks and only needed 4 roses.
The supplier of my reclaimed doors couldn't believe the price, he sells similar for about twice the price or more.


 Review by:

Very pleased!

Really pleased with these. I bought four sets and they look the part in my georgian house. Good quality and fit really well - look as if they've been there years!
Thank you


 Review by:

The door knobs arrived very quickly - within 48 hours of ordering. The quality is excellent - they are very well made and easy to fit. Remarkable value for money - I have no hesitation in recommending this product and company.

Victorian beehive wooden knobs

Excellent service all round. Tracking for shipping details and very speedy dispatch. Quality superb for the price. Good product, good service what more could you want. Can highly recommend this company.


 Review by:

Delighted

Super quick delivery and very happy with product. Handles look great!


 Review by:

Excellent product. Quality item. Fast efficient delivery.


 Review by:

Victorian beehive knobs

Excellent quality,the brass is of good quality and casting, and the turned knobs are crisp and have a reassuring weight.
I have been in the antiques trade for 15 years and have seen many inferior quality copies of this style of knob over the years,but these are the best I have seen.
Not to mention the very reasonable price.
Minor thing, don't forget to add the VAT when comparing other sites.


 Review by:

excellent service and good quality product


 Review by:

This was our second order. Using them on white-pained doors the idea was to tie into the sanded and stained flooring in the hall. They worked a treat, adding a special finishing touch. Upstairs we switched to the Georgian brass alternative as my wife preferred this feel for the carpeted landing/bedrooms. Now all we need is more doors!


 Review by:

I bought these for a victorian house we are renovating. I thought the builders would not think much of them, but they think they are great and were really impressed with the price. I am really pleased with the price and they look fabulous now they are on the doors. I would highly recommend these door knobs.


 Review by:

Terrific service. Terrific product. Am about to order some more!

 Review by:

Excellent quality, service and delivery

Ordered three pairs of the beehive door knobs. Absolutely lovely and the price and delivery was excellent. Everyone is really impressed. Even with the delivery charge it would impossible to find anything cheaper.


 Review by:

Astonishing quality for the price. I'd read all the reviews before ordering so was confident they would be exactly what I was after. Well, they are and more. So good in fact, I'm about to order another six. Service was first class as well. Can't be faulted on all counts.


 Review by:

Lovely knobs

Very quick delivery and the knobs are much higher quality than I was expecting for such a great price. They are lovely.


 Review by:

After searching for quality handles that did not require a second mortgage to purchase I came across these and bought one to assess the quality. They are wonderful, very well made with ALL the bits including an allen key each for fitting and inexpensive (I did not use the word cheap deliberately).


 Review by:

Great product at an unbelievably good price, ordered one as a sample first just in case and then promptly ordered enough to do the whole house. Beautiful wood and very nice authentic brass. Used with tubular latches for very easy installation.
First class service and super quick delivery too!


 Review by:

You won't regret buying these

We had been looking for reasonably-priced victorian doorknobs for some time, but the problem was that the locks would only accept a fairly thin spindle, which ruled out many other knobs.

These knobs are just right with their removable collar, and the price is quite frankly a giveaway being considerably less than just about all of their competition. I bought one set to see whether they would work and then quickly followed up with another four.

And after all that, they look and feel just right too.


 Review by:

Very nice quality door knobs

I had to wait for these to come back into stock and it was worth the wait. The door knobs look very nice on and feel good to handle. Easy to fit by a basic diyer. Would definately recommend.


 Review by:

These knobs have a good solid quality feel in the hand. They look beautiful on the 4 reclaimed Victorian doors we are just fitting in our Victorian terrace house. They have really changed the feel of the house - subtle quality! Excellent value for money too.


 Review by:

Excellent quality door knobs

These really are as good as the reviews suggest. So much cheaper than their competitors and yet the wood and brass is top class and perfectly enhance original victorian panel doors. Ordered saturday midday and delivered tuesday am - brilliant!
