they look pretentious on bleached and pine doors.

Originally I was going to use this on my office door, but it's perhaps too gorgeous to risk scratching.  


Definitely use it! :D

If you have modern doors you might have a problem in that your hand gets crushed against the door frame if you are not careful - this is because the user less wood and use narrower mechanisms moving the turm point too close to the edge of the door. Better to buy antique doors from an antiques salvage centre.


This is more likely to be related to the original fittings. Most people are replacing a turning handle with a lever handle. Mortice locks designed for lever handles are set closer to the edge of the door than those designed for turning handles. Older doors probably had turning handles. Door ironmongery is a whole new ball game!

You're so wise Frank!  :lol:  :lol:

Thanks Adam...I think I will use it, although a lady that missed bidding on it is keen to buy from me.   :shock:   Actually, I don't think it'll look too bad on my bleached pine doors (although the silver is much better) as nothing here matches anyway!  That's how I like it - it's easier!   :wink: :D  :D
