Antique Pull Handle
This traditional style antique pull handle is a medium vintage black pull handle for internal or external doors or kitchen drawers. It measures 6 inches in length and is finished with an old bean or rounded end.
It is hand made from antique style wrought iron with a traditional wide grip surface.
The decorative cottage bean head ends measure 5cm wide. The rustic handle itself is 16cm long in total and 1.5cm wide across the grip. The depth from the surface it is mounted on measures 4cm providing plenty of space to easily grasp the handle.
Our wrought iron products are all hand forged. So though similar will not be identical. Each piece is hand finished and given a beeswax coating. All our hand-forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look.
Making our Handles
All of these handles have been hand forged. We have a small blacksmiths shop that produces these for us. This is a traditional forge where all the products are hand made in the traditional way on the anvil. The blacksmiths that make these are highly skilled artisans. They are passionate about their work and share the same ethos as we do about producing top quality wrought iron products.
When each handle has been forged it is then dressed. To dress these traditional handles they are treated with beeswax. This is a very old vintage method of treating iron. Each handle is hand cleaned and polished it is then dipped into the beeswax. The wax helps the iron in two ways. Firstly ith wax penetrates into the tiny holes on the iron and forms an airtight seal on the surface of the iron. This prevents the handle from excessive rusting. The second advantage the wax has is that it also evens the colour of the iron out. The colour of the handle will be black with some patches of golden brown.
