The Enlightenment Room - Interesting Victorian history and advice
As for internal ironmongery, in the first half of the nineteenth century, door knobs tended to be brass, wood or glazed china spheres with some simple decorative elements, and fairly plain fingerplates.
A rim lock is externally mounted on the door hence it is on display. It is commonly used in a bathroom or other internal doors in a house which is not to say that it cannot be used on the main entrances with additional security.
Single glazed windows are a major factor in energy loss as glass is a poor insulator and also because windows can be ill fitting and draughty. A simple and cost effective solution is to introduce secondary glazing appropriate for Listed buildings or those with Conservation Areas.
Period door furniture is an essential element of the interior design features of a Victorian house. There would be few mistakes more catastrophic than the purchase and use of a brushed steel modern door handle on a 150 year old oak front door of a Victorian cottage.
