A pair of Victorian style door knobs with "beehive" design in nickel plated brass. Larger version also available.

These classic solid brass beehive door knobs have been coated in nickel with matching rose plates and fixing screws.

This design was extremely popular during the Victorian (c. 1837 - 1901) period and continues to be popular in today’s contemporary homes as well as period renovations.

These door knobs show an understated, but classic elegance from a period when quality was not compromised.

All our door knobs can be used on either tubular, mortise or rim locks as each rose plate is separate.

The door knobs are unsprung and rely on the spring in the door lock for their back and forth movement


Key Points
  • High quality design taken from an original door knob salvaged by us.
  • Solid brass nickel plated 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.
  • 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 nickel beehive door knob *
Metric Imperial
Door knob projection 70mm 2.75"
Door knob diameter 49mm 1.93"

Spindle length 125mm 4.92"
Spindle diameter 8mm 0.31"
Max door thickness 65mm 2.56"
* 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.

Excellent product and service

We ordered 4 sets of door knobs and were so pleased that we ordered 11 more pairs to fully refit the house. There was a fault with the second set (seized part so knobs couldn’t be dismantled for fitting); however, this was immediately rectified without question. We are delighted with the knobs, and very satisfied that the Company provides immediate and effective customer service, and would would shop from the Vintage Door Knob Centre in future without hesitation.

Victorian Door Knobs

The door knobs arrived quickly and are very good quality. They were slightly smaller than I was expecting but this is just relative to some similar knobs I had purchased previously, they are still a good size. Will use Vintage Door Knobs again in future.

beehive door knobs

Slightly smaller than I'd imagined, but beautiful. Cold to the touch.. Great delivery extremely speedy and efficient.


 Review by:

Top Notch

Surprisingly good quality for the price - pretty heavy and very nice finish. A touch smaller than I imagined which actually works very well with a standard 2" backset latch for avoiding scraped knuckles.


 Review by:

Extremely happy with purchase

I bought 8 of these handles not having shopped with this company before. Firstly the delivery charge was surprisingly cheap and the handles were delivered really quickly with no issues at all. We loved the handles when we saw them and were delighted with the quality, especially as they were such a good price. We had a locksmith fit them for us and he said that the handles were extremely good quality for the price and the mechanisms were brilliant. He was very impressed and will be ordering in future! The handles look great on and overall we are delighted with the service, standard of goods etc that we have experienced with Coventry. Obviously we cannot comment on all the goods on the site but from our experience would recommend this company without hesitation. A very pleasant experience from start to finish. We order a lot of things online and have experienced really bad service and quality of goods before so are always delighted when someone gets it right! Will definitely be ordering in future!
