PERIOD - BLOXWICH DOOR KNOB

The Bloxwich door knob is a faithful copy of  a Georgian Period original. Found in many stately homes, the Bloxwich knob is a classic design which looks stunning in any period property. The knobs are made from solid turned brass and as such are beautifully heavy and substantial. Available to match with the Bloxwich cupboard knobs on kitchens and wardrobes for a cohesive and traditional look.

REGENCY RIM LATCH CAST IRON

Our reproduction rim locks and latches are a true masterpiece of casting and engineering. Reproduced to original Victorian designs down to the finest details, these items are each carefully crafted and aged to be as close to the real thing as possible. Even the keys are made from aged brass to give an authentic 'always been there' look to the lock, this is often a failing of modern rim locks which use steel utililty keys.
Rim locks have been used on doors for centuries, and can be found in applications which range from the humblest of cottages to the grandest of country houses. From its beginning as a simple and functional item, the appearance of the rim lock has evolved to be something much greater over the years.

Using different materials and crafting techniques, the rim lock became a decorative and beautiful showpiece on period doors. The Davenport rim lock available from More Handles displays one of the finest designs to have appeared during the long and illustrious history of the rim lock.
