ThePrestbury Door Knob are a solid pair of handcrafted door knobs, popular for their weight and simplicity. The unlaquered brass achieves a timeless elegance, polished on all surface areas but aged to highlight the detail and design.
These knobs will oxidize and dull down in time as part of the ageing process, but they may be polished time and time again if you want to achieve keep the finish at a brilliant shine. Alternatively, they can be left to age naturally and will ultimately oxidize to a beautiful rose-gold colour, in the case of the Brass knobs.
Please note this knob set is also available in Nickel which will be much less susceptible to aging, whilst still giving a more warm, elegant, period feel than the bright coldness of chrome.
These knobs come unsprung, are hollow and have loose roses, so as to enable them to be used with a rim lock (discard one rose) or use with a mortice lock.
They have 8mm threaded spindle to take adjustment for various door thickness and lock firmly with a grub screw. The grub should locate on the ''V'' in the spindle shaft and not on the threaded part.
For best results the centre of the knob should be a minimum of 76mm (3'') from the edge of the door. We recommend the double sprung latches for use with this knob, at 4'' or 5'' or 6".
Suitable for use with either a Mortice or Rim Latch.
Supplied in PAIRS complete with threaded spindle and screws.
