A pair of Georgian/Victorian style door knobs with black wooden "reeded" design, brass collars and brass rose plates.

High quality, hand turned, wooden door knobs made to an original design.

These Georgian reeded door knobs have been faithfully reproduced from an original door knob we were fortunate to salvage. Therefore they are 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 the Victorian period (c. 1837 - 1901) and has remained popular up to today. The brass rose plates are separate which allow these door knobs to 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 solid rosewood stained handles.
  • Each set comes individually wrapped 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.
Dimensions:  Please see specification section below
Specification for Georgian style wooden reeded door knob *
Metric Imperial
Door knob projection 83mm 3.26"
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.

Very good product

It took me a while to find these and they are exactly what I wanted. The delivery was efficient and the service professional. The product is of very good quality and they look great. I would have preferred if the hole for the grub screw on the collar was equidistant from the screw holes that attach it to the door. It is a tiny thing. I would recommend these and I would buy them again.

These were the best price i could find online for a front door knob.
They look much more expensive than they were

 Review by:

We ordered two sets of these knobs and were very pleased with speed of delivery and quality of the product. They look great on our doorstep. The only slight quibble is with the screws which did not match the the quality of the other components.

Georgian Door Knobs - Ebonised Reeded (pair)

I bought 3 pairs of these knobs a few weeks ago and they are lovely so I have bought 4 more pairs to do the rest of the doors in the house! Great product, quick delivery and easy to fit.


 Review by:

Good product. we have bought a couple of these in the past and been very pleased with service and quality of the product.


 Review by:

Georgian door knobs

Lovely reproduction knobs. Very quick delivery. I intend to buy some more in the near future. The only thing I would suggest is that as the grub screws are small and easily dropped a spare pair should be included in the pack.


 Review by:

 Review by:

Beautifully hand made door knobs. Come complete with spindle, roses, screws and allen key. Very solid as the knobs screw onto the spindle unlike cheaper ones. I bought 5 pairs, liked them so much that i bought another 6 pairs to do the rest of the house. A great product.

Georgian vintage wooden reeded style 4 doorknobs

I recently purchased two pairs for our Edwardian flat. They are now in situ and look wonderful. These were great value, and look good with the solid wood knobs and the heavy brass collars. I would certainly buy from this company again and also recommend their products to others Also, the service and delivery were first class.


 Review by:

Fabulous! !!

After searching everywhere for affordable yet period style handles I stumbled across these reproduction Georgia handles from Coventry, well what a find. They far out weigh anything I have seen anywhere else for style, quality and affordability. I can't wait for my next purchase and will definitely use them again.


 Review by:

I ordered 4 handles for our converted Georgian flat in London. I am a very thrifty shopper so had spent a long time trying to find authentic handles which were made well for the price, without them looking cheap. I am extremely happy with them & although there was a delay in delivery due to ordering around Christmas time, Coventry dealt with this issue effectively & went beyond what I would expect - some of the best customer service I have ever experienced! I would thoroughly recommend the product & will certainly use Coventry again.


 Review by:

Great Product. Great Service


 Review by:

Elegant door furniture

I bought these to replace old Bakelite door handles in my Edwardian house and I'm delighted with them. Unfortunately one of the grub screws did a disappearing act today but I rang the company and they immediately sprang into action and put a replacement in the post for me. So - good product and good customer service. What's not to like?!


 Review by:

Solid, authentic and easy to fit

I live in a Georgian townhouse and the handles look great! The brass isn't polished so would work well with both chrome and brass finishes. They look as if they belonged to the house, great replicas and of solid quality. I fitted them with 120mm length latches for that architectural finish! Great product!


 Review by:

Loved these

I bought two sets of these handles for a late Victorian house and they are just perfect. Also bought an escutcheon which looks great.


 Review by:

Excellent quality door handles. Look very authentic and well made. Excellent speedy delivery, would recommend.

Georgian vintage doorknobs

Great product exactly as described beautifully packaged and speedy delivery thank you


Comment by:

Since the price is far lower than anything similar on the web, I did fear an inferior quality. However, pleased to report that the quality is of the highest and that we are absolutely delighted with this product.


 Review by:

Real quality

I had to double check that a pair of knobs was supplied, because I couldn't believe the price! So, yes, you do indeed get a PAIR of beautifully made doorknobs for your money, where most online suppliers' products are well over double the price. They arrived quickly and well packed, and are made with quality materials with a handsome finish. The fitting was a breeze, as the threaded spindle makes them very secure. Couldn't be happier.


 Review by:

Got these last year excellent value for money. Also just received lastest order of beehive design. Very impressed with the service.


 Review by:

Great product, even better price!

I've recently bought and been refurbishing a Victorian property. I had been looking around for a few weeks to find reproduction handles to match some originals already in the property. I was so please when I came across these. Although, they are not exactly the same as the original design they are very close and look great. These handles are also very reasonably priced considering other online retailers wanted £30 + for very similar products!

Great service, quick delivery


 Review by:

Brilliant


 Review by:

Absolutely superb item. the quality is second to none. I am in the trade and this is as good as any of the top names, and the price is amazing. excellent service too. what more can you ask for. Will definitely order from them again.


 Review by:

Repro Georgian door handle

The product quality is fantastic value for such a low price.

My only reservation is that my order was not registered properly (I think the payment system needs reconsideration). However when the non-recognition of my order was identified, I received the order the following day and I will certainly order some more of these well made repro-Georgian door handles


 Review by:

Absolutely incredible quality for the price

Like me, you might come across these doorknobs after an extensive search for quality reproductions to suit your Victorian house. Like me, you might stop at the picture and think - "those look great"... but then be slightly concerned by the fact that these are only around a tenner a set when everything else you've looked at is over £30.

Worry not! These are the best quality I have ever seen - far, far better than the other repros I bought a while back for £40 a pair. Yes, you really do get 2 handles for your tenner, crafted from quality wood that truly looks and feels like real ebony. And the brass is thick, has a handcrafted appearance and is gently aged to fit perfectly into a period setting.

I do not know how they do it for the money. I am only glad they do!


 Review by:

Fantastic price, speedy delivery and a brilliant product! These look fantastic in my period property, and feel great too - a possibly overlooked attribute for door handles!


 Review by:

Excellent product

I am thrilled with these. They are nicer than anything else I have found for the price. Delivered promptly. Excellent service. I wish I could get everything I need here!


 Review by:

an excellent product which looks good in our New Town Edinburgh flat. Speedy delivery too.


 Review by:

Great door knobs

The Victorian style door knobs I bought are excellent quality for the price. I've just replaced every door knob in my house with these, they work great for rim locks and normal doors. Fitting and adjustment is very easy. The company were very fast at delivery. All in all an excellent buy.


 Review by:

Althought delivery wasn't particularly speedy (1 week)I was amazed at the quality for the price. Superbly packaged. Easy to fit and look absolutely fabulous in our renovated period property.

Hi,

Would just like to say how pleased I am with my recent purchase of your Georgian ebonised reeded door knobs and key hole covers. They are exceptionally good quality and are far nicer ' in the flesh'.
The prompt delivery was also a bonus. You will be thoroughly recommended.

Thankyou very much,

Kind regards,
