This handle measures 20cm long with a diameter of 1.1cm. The dainty arrow-shaped heads are 2.5.cm wide.
Our wrought iron handles 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.
This handle is another unique product of The Rustic Merchant. We have had this handle made in various sizes so that you can use them on all types of home furnishings including doors, drawers, cupboards and drawers etc.
These handles are all hand forged. By this, we mean that the vintage handles are forged in the very old and traditional way on the anvil. We have been fortunate in finding a small artisan blacksmiths shop that is now making these cottage handles for us. The artisans who make these are very passionate about their work and this will show in the finished handle. The handes will show the forging marks.
Once the cottage black handle has been forged it is now ready to be dressed. The dressing is the final finish that you apply to wrought iron. In this case, the final coating is natural beeswax. This is a very old and ancient way of finishing wrought iron. The handle is dipped into the natural beeswax. This wax will now seep into the tiny holes on the surface of the iron and will form a thin coat. The coating will form a seal over the iron and this will help to avoid any excessive rusting.
Fixing screws will be supplied with your order.
