Black Bakelite BROLITE Art Deco Odeon Lever Handles
2no 6202blk + 2no 2501n + 1no 6001 = 6605MBLK
All our BROLITE real Bakelite pieces are based on original designs from early to mid-20th century and unusually, all our door knobs & handles are interchangeable on all our Bakelite back-plates as well as our Nickel and Antique Brass back-plates. A luxury which gives a huge number of combinations to choose from. If you are unable to see the combination you are after, you can order the parts individually to make up your desired set.
We offer some great combinations and here, a quintessential Art Deco handle is shown with round Polished Nickel or Antique Brass back-plates. To assist the handles returning to the horizontal position, you may be able to fit, what are called, "spring cassettes" which are cut in underneath the back-plate in the face of the door. Alternatively, you may need to replace your latch or lock in the door with a stronger sprung version. If the latch or lock has a reasonable strong spring action, then you will probably not need the cassettes.
The set is complete with a 5/16" (7.9mm) spindle so it should fit some old locks as well as new locks. You may have a 7.6mm spindle in your old lock, in which case the square hole in the lock can be filed out to 7.9mm with a sharp square file. Also with the 5/16" spindle are the grub screws, packing washers and wood screws.
These fabulous period door handles suit either mortice locks or rim locks. For rim lock use, simply discard one of the two back-plates. They can also be used with a knob on one side rather than a handle both sides. Please select the individual parts you require to make up your sets.
The back-plates are No 2501 and the lever is No 6202, these parts can be purchased separately if required.
The knobs are available in Black or Mottled (Walnut) Brown and the back-plates (roses) are available in Antique Brass Unlacquered and Polished nickel.Â
