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.
Here we have a pair of vintage-style real Black or Mottled (Walnut) Brown Bakelite Plian Oval Door Knobs complete with round back-plates finished in either Antique Brass (unlacquered) for that real period look or Polished Nickel for a look that may well suit some contemporary surroundings as well as the period home. The back-plates are made from heavy solid brass and the Antique Brass plates are in an unlacquered finish; so, if required, they can be brightened with metal polish. The oval Bakelite knob offers a comfortable grip with added leverage (because of the shape) making it easier to turn than round knobs. Complete with 5/16" 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. Complete with the 5/16" spindle, grub screws for the spindle, packing washers and wood screws.
These fabulous period knobs suit either mortice locks or rim locks. For rim lock use, simply discard one of the two back-plates.
The back-plates are No 2501 and the knob is No 6125, 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.
Knob: 60mm x 35mm.
Back-plate: 61mm diameter
