BROLITE® by Broughtons, Leicestershire, England


Vintage-style "Bakelite" door furniture has been "re-born" under the name of: BROLITE® 


Most Bakelite items are available in Mottled Brown or the more unusual Black.  An unheard of feature is that door knobs and handles are all interchangeable on all our back-plates meaning a huge number of permutations are available.


All items are skilfully modelled on the originals that we were lucky enough to locate and purchase. (Some very rare originals)

Most sets** of door knobs or handles are suitable for use with rim locks (as well as mortice) by simply discarding one of the back-plates. **Except back-plates with a key hole. Alternatively, you should be able to purchase the parts separately so for rim lock sets, just order one of the back-plates.


There are simply times when nothing else will really "do", so tactile and authentic, characterful and unusual. No chips, no scratches, no paint and at reasonable prices.


Made just like it was in the 1920's, 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's except that ours does not contain asbestos like some of the originals did. In addition, we also have the help of up-to-date mould making with "CAD" facilities (Computer Aided Design) and CNC machines (Computer Numerical Control)
