Our traditional wrought iron products are all hand forged. So though similar will not be identical. Each cottage piece is hand finished and given a bees wax coating. All our hand forged products are carefully aged for an authentic look.
These handles are cast for us in small foundries. Each piece is individually cast and hand polished and cleaned. The artisan smiths that produce this product are dedicated and proud. this will show in the original and quality of the product. Once the handle has been cleaned and polished it is dipped in hot black oil. Hot black oil is a very traditional way of looking after cast iron. The oil does two things . Firstly it protects the product from excessive rusting and also gives the handle a more even colour.
When you receive your package you will find the correct amount of screws delivered to fit your handle. These will be traditional screws they will be black and slotted with a smooth dome head.
We would recommend that when you go to fit the screws you firstly make a pilot hole. The pilot hole can be made in two ways either with a bradawl or with a small drill. By making these starter holes you will ensure that the screw is fitted squarely to the handles and that the screw heads fit flush with the handle base.
