Victorian Door Knobs





During the "Victorian" Periodó1840 -1900ólocks and latches of cast iron, brass or sheet iron were fitted with a wide variety of knobs. For this reason the "Victorian" locks we offer are priced without knobs so that you may select the type that you desire from the following listing.

One of the most noticeable developments of the Victorian period was the widely used mineral knob, in White, Bennington Brown, and Black. These knobs were patented by John Pepper in 1851. Mr. Cornelius Erwin, of Russell and Erwin, helped him form "The Mineral Knob Company" to produce these knobs and Russell and Erwin, as well as other companies, used his products on thousands of their own locks.
