Our 4″ Bow Handle
Our old drawer handle 4-inch bow handle is cast in heavy wrought iron with a matt black vintage oil finish. These old small cast iron handles are ideal for kitchen cabinets or drawers.
This old drawer handle measures 10cm in length and has a diameter of 0.7cm. The maximum depth of the traditional handle at the height of the curve is 2.5cm.
Our heavy duty cast iron door and cottage cabinet handles are all individually hand forged, and so they are similar but not identical. Each rustic piece is hand finished and given a black oil coating. All our hand-forged products are carefully aged. Once installed these products will look old and authentic.
All of our cast iron products are hand cast. We have been fortunate in finding a small foundry to do this work for us. The foundry employs artisan casters who have the same ethos as we do for hand cast quality items. Once these handles have been cast they are dipped into hot black oil. Hot oil is a very ancient and traditional way of treating cast iron. The oil penetrates into to tiny hole on the surface of the iron. This allows the oil to form a thin layer over the entire length of the handle. The oil now forms a protective coating and will protect against excessive rusting. The oil also gives the handle a uniform colour along its length. As this handle has been treated with black oil it will need a wipe with a soft cloth before using for the first time.
When you receive the handle you will see that fixing screws are included within your package. The screws will be traditional black vintage screws they will be black with a cottage slotted domed head.
