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.

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!

I have in the past bought 5 cast iron radiators and all the fittings and more recently bought 5 sets of nickel door knobs. The quality on all these items is superb and by far exceeded my expectations. The service from this company is efficient fast and totally reliable.
I have also visited the yard and it is so well laid out its easy to find what your looking for I will definetly be coming back and highly reccommend this company.
