A pair of Georgian/Victorian style door knobs with a "reeded" design in solid brass.

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

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

This style of door knob was popular from the Georgian period (c. 1714 - 1837) through to Victorian (c. 1837 - 1901) times and have remained popular 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.
  • Solid brass handles with simple lines.
  • 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.

* 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.

Quality Door Knobs

I bought these Georgian Reeded Door Knobs for a door in our Georgian house. The style was perfect and the quality of the knobs and their weight have impressed me. The price was very reasonable and they arrived quickly and well packaged. All the screws and instructions made the job easy. Thank you.

Fantastic Heavy Knobs with a Beautiful Finish

These are fantastic knobs and look great on my doors - I've paid a lot more elsewhere for this quality of design in the past, so this is a real good value product. They are weighty and solid, and give the right vintage feel. Delivery was fast and I am more than satisfied.

My minor grumble is the screws, as the screw heads are not the best quality (a couple were not deep enough to take the screwdriver and one broke) , but given the price, this is a minor issue.

Exactly as per title. Very good service altogether. Incidentally yesterday I was in a reclamation yard in Devon -similar handle on sale for 47.00!! I know where I will be buying in future.

Excellent product. Heavy and robust. Very realistic - you would think they were original. Highly recommended but you'll need your own brass screws!

Affordable Quality Knob

Good product - realistic and affordable. Looks old so expect imperfections. Screws supplied were not brass which was only grumble.

 Review by:

brass door knobs

these knobs were purchased to replace a crystal set that had worn out and would have cost a lot to replace.I was very please with the quality of these knobs,they are real brass and not plated tat!and at a good price,they are asking twice as much on ebay for clapped out used brass"antique"knobs.The only downside the screws supplied were not as illustrated and were a dull black finish.It was not a problem to to get a set of brass screws to replace them.All in all 5 star shop.


 Review by:

Great service. Wonderful product. Terrific value. We purchased four sets to use on white-painted 1930's five-panel doors. Couldn't be happier with the result.


 Review by:

Pleased overall with the knobs, however my husband felt that the grub screws were a bit fiddly, also the spindles were a bit short for the thick old doors we have in our house which has caused us a bit of a problem as there is not enough "bite". Not strictly speaking your problem but it would be good to have a "long spindle" option.


 Review by:

Great quality, fantastic value very pleased with purchase and prompt delivery.

FABULOUS GEORGIAN BRASS KNOBS

Fabulous product. Beautifully made Fantastic finish and quality.
excellent service.

Pity they were too small for my needs, I wished I could just keep them but had nowhere to keep them, so I regrettably had to return them.

I have bookmarked the company and will buy from them in future.
Just wish they would help by arranging couriers to pick up goods like all others. I had to post them myself.


 Review by:

These handles are beautiful and significantly better value than those available from other suppliers. The order was delivered gobsmakingly quickly. Excellent service!


 Review by:

I have purchased 9 sets of Georgian brass door handles from you and am fitting them throughout my house. I am very pleased with them and they look really nice. I will certainly recommend them to my friends.
Thank you.


 Review by:

Excellent service

The service was excellent - arrived next day!
The knobs are amazing value for money.
The only thing that I would say is that they were slightly smaller than I expected but I could have measured them first. It is not a problem, but I cannot use them on my front door, only internal doors.
What we need now is a wider range.....


 Review by:

These are nice, here are some hints

First point is that although they do not look like it, the screws that come with these are actually brass screws, so be careful with them. They will polish up as real brass, but also they are delicate.

Second point, these are really nice solid brass, they come with the square bar between them, and an allen key to fix them on.

Third point, when you order 3 you get 3 pairs, which is six knobs.

The only slighty downside is that it isn't easy to judge the size online. The ring you see on the right is normal size (not oversize) and as you see the knobs are the same radius.

If you get these, get the matching keyhole covers they are nice and large and complement these really great.

Georgian reeded door knobs

Good product, competitive pricing. Fast delivery


 Review by:

A while back I bought some original solid brass door knobs from a back-water reclaimation yard in Cornwall. They cost me £20 each (quite a bargain I felt) and I spent ages cleaning them - and they look great. But I needed a few more and couldn't find any for less than about £60.
I then spotted these and was initially uncertain - how can they be good at that price? But they are just as good as the original ones. I would endorse the points made by others - namely: they look and feel like the real thing (quite heavy and solid brass); they are easy to fit; they arrived in a couple of days.
Well done!


 Review by:

After looking at dozens of reclaimed and replica door handles for our Regency town house restoration, we chose Georgian style reeded brass knobs from Coventry reclamation and couldn't be happier with the results. They were delivered within a couple of days, looked like carefully cleaned originals, had our architect convinced they were originals, and speechless when I told him how little they cost.

Georgian style reeded brass doorknobs

I ordered these doorknobs after a very helpful phone conversation. They came in two days and are excellent quality. I especially like the threaded spindles which mean they fit well and don't rattle like so many others do. The design goes well with my Victorian house (not just Georgian) and the brass colour is very natural.
