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 of our Bakelite 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, an Art Deco handle, in a most unusual design, is shown with a fabulous Deco plate with a keyhole. (We also stock it without the keyhole) . 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. If the latch or lock has a reasonable strong spring action, then you will probably not need the cassettes.
Pairs of handles or knobs are complete with a 5/16" (7.9mm) square spindle so they should fit some old locks as well as new ones. You may have a 7.6mm spindle in the old lock, in which case the square hole in the lock can be filed out to 7.9mm with a sharp square file. The necessary slotted grub screws for the spindle and slotted wood screws for the plates are also supplied.
The back-plate is number 6080 and the Deco lever is No 6205 and these parts and the screws can be purchased separately if required.
Available in Black and Mottled Brown.
Back-plate: 188mm x 45mm
