Our rustic Fleur de Lys cast iron door handles black Gothic door handles are cast in malleable iron. They are finished in a tough black epoxy finish suitable for exterior use. The base plate features vintage fleur de lys ends top and bottom. The lever handle has a old decorative twist cast into it. As these are heavy antique handles each lever is sprung so as to always return to it’s correct position. If a locking base plate is required see our version of this handle with a keyhole.
The base plate measures 22cm by 5cm and the handle itself is 11cm long and 2cm across.
Traditional fixing screws and bar are provided. These cottage handles may be mounted either indoors or outdoors.
To make these handles we wanted to find a small foundry that could produce them for us. These handles are cast by artisan smiths who have a passion similar to ours for quality. The handles are individually hand cast cast. Once cast they are hand cleaned and polished. Each handle is then hand sprayed with a tough black epoxy paint. This allows for the handles to be used both internally and externally.
When you receive your package for your cast iron door handles black you will find all the parts you need to install your handles. you will have fixing screws and a connecting bar. The fixing screws are traditional black slotted screws. The fixing bar will need to be trimmed to size, a hacksaw Will work well here. When installing the handles we would strongly recommend that you either drill a pilot hole or use a bradawl to make starting points for your screws. This will enable you to screw them in straight and the screw heads will fit flush to the handle base plate.
We have hundreds of other hand forged and hand cast products on our site. Please take this opportunity to have a good look around.
