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

Save £6.00 + VAT per door knob sets/pairs on our standard VDK-2's!

These door knobs are a combination of returns where customers have changed their minds, may have rusting on the spindle or have slight imperfections which really don't detract from the overall look - they are unboxed and have the fixing screws missing but these can easily be purchased.

There is a limited stock available and each order will come with an allen key.

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

This style was very popular from the Victorian period (c. 1837 - 1901) and continues to be popular in today’s contemporary homes as well as period renovations; because the door knobs come with separate rose plates they can be used on either tubular, mortise or rim locks.

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

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

Key Points
  • Solid brass nickel plated handles hand turned and aged.
  • Each set comes complete with Allen key for loosening and fitting grub screws.
  • Nickel finish to collar and rose plates.
  • The threaded steel spindle is grooved and threaded either end for fine adjustments. This is known as "The Pitts Mortice System".
  • 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.
