The Solid Bronze Prestbury Door Knob, part of From the Anvil's new range genuine Solid Bronze door furniture.
A pair of solid handcrafted door knobs, popular for their weight and simplicity.
This product is created using genuine turned Solid Bronze, which is left unlacquered for maximum authenticity.
The solid bronze achieves a timeless elegance, over time and through use, the bronze will slowly lighten in colour, especially on the raised detailing, resulting in a beautiful subtle patine appearance.
This product is part of our From the Anvil range, who have specialized in recreating original designs by hand and have acquired a reputation for excellence.
Designed to finish off your door suite and match perfectly with other ironmongery.
The Prestbury matching Centre Door Knob is also available in Solid Bronze. (Please see the related items below.)
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.
The Prestbury Door Knobs 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.
