The antique doorknobs are typically used on the exterior of the doors. These are designed to include key operated cylinders. In case of the ones that cater to the need for privacy, the key operated cylinders are absent. These are used on bedroom and bathroom doors. While they are lockable, they unlock with the help of an unlockable generic tool. Those meant for passages are also referred to as closet doorknobs and do not actually lock. The 'dummy' doorknobs are single knobs, with single screws. They are usually used on ball catch doors or in the absence of any latch mechanism.
Interestingly, most varieties were created keeping in mind that in case a firm grip is lacking, then the doorknob could be operated using two hands. The designs are proof of the consideration and the popular operating lever designs available today replicate the antique varieties. Its identification is an important consideration whether the add-on is for commercial buildings or for a household. The brass, stone, and wooden doorknobs add a touch of class to any ordinary door.

Usually, such doors are observed to have reduced back-set and subsequently insufficient space for the regular counterparts. The designs are many and quite a few are best suited as fittings on narrow doors.
