DK1072: 'FITZHERBERT' Solid brass door knob with unique inner-rose system
The Fitzherbert doorknob has been named after Maria Anne Fitzherbert – King George IV’s first true love and wife. Its creation has been inspired by The Royal Pavilion in Brighton with its rich and eclectic mix of architecture and decoration which takes extravagance to the highest level.
The Royal Pavilion was constructed by notable British architect John Nash as the seaside pleasure palace of King George IV who had a passion for French architecture, oriental styles as well as neoclassical and gothic design.
Details such as the large imposing perimeter octagonal columns, elaborate minarets, imposing domes, decorative cornice and detailed marquetry all play their part in the design of the Fitzherbert range.
The influence of these exquisite details has been incorporated into our collection of door furniture. Here you can see evidence of the external pillars at the entrance of the salon and delicate inlaid details taken from the embellishments on the East entrance hall wall. Combined this makes for a beautifully balanced and truly impacting door handle.
