All our BROLITE real Bakelite pieces have been modelled on original designs from early to mid-20th century. The door knobs & handles are interchangeable on all the Brolite backplates, so you can order the parts individually if necessary. Click here to view the individual parts.

Please note: these handles/knobs are unsprung - just like the originals - and so require some help to return them to a horizontal position. You willl therefore need to ensure that the latch or lock used has sufficient spring capacity.

Really Authentic, 5th Sep 2019

Reviewer: Chris M

We are in the process of refurbishing a 1930’s built house and we really desired to keep the house looking and feeling as originally designed, having spoken to a builder friend of mine he suggested Broughtons as a possible source of bakelite door furniture, as all that I had found at reclamation yards was no better than that we already had.

I have to say that form the point that I ordered these the whole experience was second to none and it was a real pleasure dealing with Broughtons; I found that the price was very reasonable and better than some of the reclamation yards for something looking tired and they were delivered the very next day which was outstanding. I also found the quality to be excellent and I was surprised that they even included shims so I could ensure that the knobs fitted correctly and didn’t rattle.

So, all in all, I rate this purchase very high and I will go here again for more as I need them.

NOTE: Bakelite by its very nature is a brittle product so do not over tighten any fixing screws as you will crack the bakelite, this is made clear in the instruction sheet included.

Absolutely lovely door handles. I've purchased a few pairs now and we love them. I would have only one slight criticism in that you have to be careful not to over-tighten the screws on fitting otherwise they crack. This seems like an obvious observation, and it is! More a fault of the joiner that fitted the first pair we bought. I won't use his services again but I will buy more of these beautiful handles - and fit them myself.

Brolite is fantastic!, 14th Mar 2017

Reviewer: Robin S

Thank you Broughton's for re-making these beautiful handles. Just as I remember as a child visiting family, these mottled brown doorknobs and plates look great. Tactile and elegant, they bring a pleasure to the eye and the hand. I Love the ability to mix and match and we've just placed a second order for the upstairs of our home as the handles downstairs look so good. Such value too, you won't be disappointed if you order these.
