Admiral Nelsons’ Door Knobs




This month, we were very interested to hear about what is thought to be Admiral Nelson’s door knobs when the Antiques Roadshow went to film at Plymouth’s Royal William Yard.  Thought experts were somewhat dubious to believe that the door knobs had belonged to Nelson, they had been kept along with a number of other nautical objects which were believed to have been his. 

Fiona Bruce, the presenter of the Antiques Roadshow, clearly found the question of the authenticity of the objects intriguing.  The expert looking specifically at the door knobs on the programme, was military expert, Graham Lay.  He did however have doubts that the alleged doorknob duo had been in Admiral Lord Nelsons possession at the time of the Battle of Trafalgar.  Despite this disappointing result, they were extremely interesting, beautiful and plus it was a wonderful story – even if it wasn’t all true!
