FAQ About Antique Door Knobs

Will these antique doorknobs work on my new doors?

Yes, you will need additional hardware to make them work, including door plates or rosettes, a tubular latch or mortise lock that fits with these knobs. For full details of how to make this work, you should check out our Antique Door Hardware Primer.

Can these antique doorknobs work with any door plates or rosettes?

No. The neck, or shank of each pair of antique door knobs is sized specifically to fit with plates or rosettes made by that manufacturer. There was no standardization. So you should measure that neck or shank and compare it to the receiver on the door plate or rosette. For full details of how to make this work, you should check out our Antique Door Hardware Primer.

What other hardware do I need with these door knobs?

You will need a latch or lock to keep the door latched in the jamb, and to hold the door knob pair in place. There are several options. For full details of how to make this work, you should check out our Antique Door Hardware Primer.
