Door knobs, handles, fingerplates, door pulls and pretty well everything you could imagine putting on a door.

One thing many people forget to think about in their houses are the doors, which is strange really because doors are the first and last thing that people will see.
I found some very elegant door furniture at a British company called Drummonds. They make door knobs, handles, fingerplates, door pulls and pretty well everything you could imagine putting on a door.

All their door hardware is made of solid brass by an ancient manufacturing method called the 'lost wax process' but it can be plated with chrome or nickel for a more modern effect.

Shown below are two of Drummonds door knobs, one in chrome,


and one elaborate copy of an original door knob from an old English country house that comes with a matching escutcheon.
