We are very pleased with these door knobs. They were delivered promptly and are just as described. They replace a mismatch of door knobs. We have enough original ebony handles for downstairs and have put the bee hives upstairs. The new ones are in keeping with the era of the house. The knobs and roses themselves are well made and have a good weight to them. It is really satisfying to restore some of the character of the house in a small way without breaking the bank. I love them.
Moved into a new house, built in the 40's and still with the original doors but horrible porcelain handles with cheap, brass collars.These wooden handles, although of the wrong era, just makes these doors 'pop' as the kids say. Easy to fit though they're 50mm thick so had to juggle them a bit. Still learning how to do it properly though stupidly bought more spindles thinking they're longer but they're not. That aside, quality bits of kit.
These door knobs are absolutely brilliant. Having seen others at more than £50 I was worried that these wouldn’t be that good but they are. I have fitted them on the downstairs doors and they look great. I will be ordering some more for upstairs once I’ve finished painting.
Door knobs arrived on time, well packaged and in great order. Had some initial difficulties separating the knobs on spindle and after enquiring with Vintage Door Knobs Centre was correctly advised that I needed to remove the small grub screws. Excellent service and product.
The door knobs arrived promptly, are really great quality and look great. The only bugbear I would have and the reason I've gone for 4 stars is that the screws are too long, they hit the box mechanism thingy inside the door. My doors are big old ones so nice and thick so it's not because they're too thin. So that's me off to screwfix tomorrow to get 4/5mm screws instead!
Very pleased with these well-made doorknobs. Nice to the feel and good to look at the only slight criticism was the rather long black screws. The length of the screws meant that they fouled on the mortice lock inside the door. Replaced with short brass screws which both look and work better.
We had been looking for authentic beehive door handles for our Victorian house renovation. We ordered the first set to see what they were like - we were not disappointed! They are beautiful and great value for money. We will now be ordering more for the rest of the house.
I ordered 4 pairs of these 18'' hinges for some oak doors I am making for my conversion. One door is very heavy, but I am confident that these will do the job. Great product and really good value.
I was so pleased to be able to speak to someone when ordering, rather than just on line, and the delivery time exceeded my expectations.
Brilliant, will use again.
Repainting the front door to my victorian cottage and needed a cover keyhole escutcheon in brass to match the period door knob and letterbox. This one fits the bill perfectly and was sent quickly and looks exactly like the picture so very pleased with the finished look.
Bought 8 sets of these door knobs for my house renovation , after looking extensively for beehive style knobs that didn't look brand new.. they only took one day to be delivered and are great. I'm really pleased with the look of them now fitted on my antique panelled doors. Good value too :)
This reproduction door knobs are great. They are really good quality and half the price of similar ones you can source on the internet. I actually did comparisons and bought an expensive one and one from here. I couldn't see any difference and they look stunning on the refurbed doors. They are quite big and chunky so check the size of your existing door knobs.
