2x2511PCP 2x6130 1x6001 = 6865CBLK
Bakelite Door knobs/handles supplied with our Art Deco chrome backplate, creating a wonderful contrast of material and a striking authentic vintage look.
Sold in pairs, the Black or Walnut real Bakelite are matched to the solid brass back plates. The plates are available in Polished Copper Unlacquered, Polished Chrome or Polished Brass Unlacquered. The brass and copper plates will mellow with time or with routine polishing with Brasso or Brasso Wadding or similar, will allow the finishes to blossom and give you a wonderful vintage patina. Over time, the copper finish will wear partly off to the Nickel finish below, this will only add to the characterful vintage look.Â
