Vintage Door Handles
Our Vintage door handles a pair of Tudor door lever handles. These are cast in malleable iron with a tough epoxy black finish. Our vintage handles are suitable for interior or exterior use. The antique style rectangular base plate is in classic Tudor style. Finished with an antique slightly stippled texture. The compact cottage lever handle features a traditional central groove. The fixing plate measures 15.5cm by 5.5cm and the handle grip itself is 10cm long and 2.5cm across.
These handles include a keyhole feature in the base plate if a locking door is required although a non-locking version is also available.
As these are heavy handles each lever is sprung so as to always return to its correct position
Fixing screws and bar are provided. These handles may be mounted indoors or outdoors.
All our handles are produced in small foundries. We have chosen these foundries because of their knowledge of small runs and bespoke work. All of their smiths are skilled artisans the proof of this is in their finished work.
Each handle is hand cast. Once cast it is hand cleaned and polished. Once polished the Vintage door handles are painted then assembled.
With each delivery, you will receive a complete set of all the things you will need to fit the handle.
Enough fixing screws will be provided. The fixings will be of traditional black slotted screws. You will also get a connecting bar. The connecting bar will need to be cut to length a small hacksaw will do the job.
Before you attach the screws we would advise that you first make pilot holes. The pilot holes can be made with a small drill bit or a bradawl. This will ensure that the screws are driven in straight and will fit nice and flush to the base plate.
