Governor – Georgian Style – 1720-1840
Georgian architecture is the name given to the set of architectural styles current between 1720 and 1830. It is eponymous for the first four British monarchs of the House of Hanover—George I, George II, George III, and George IV—who reigned in continuous succession from August 1714 to June 1830. The style was revived in the late 19th century in the United States as Colonial Revival architecture and in the early 20th century in the Great Britain; referred to as Neo-Georgian architecture
Georgian designs usually lay within the Classical orders of architecture and employed a decorative vocabulary derived from ancient Rome or Greece. The most common building materials used are brick or stone. Commonly used colours were red, tan, or white. Modern-day Georgian style homes, termed Colonial Revival architecture in the United States use a variety of colours.
We have created a Collection which contains a suite of products all hand crafted and cast from premium grade solid brass which covers door handles, door knobs and a range of accessories, all of which are true to the character of their era. The products in this Collection carry the grand yet elegant detail distinctive to Georgian design.
As was common in this Architectural period most of the Governor products are face fixed to the door with exposed screw heads (fittings are supplied). All door knobs and levers are sold in pairs but they can be and ordered singularly if specifically required. Knobs are left unsprung and levers are sprung, unless otherwise requested.
All Governor products are available in our extensive range of surface patinations. See our Finishes page to find out more.
