Antique Tudor Window stay
This 12 inches cast iron antique window stay is hand forged in a traditional Tudor style. With five different fixing positions and made of high-quality vintage cast iron. We have made this stay with an old black finish. This traditional window stay is ideal for use with our cottage Tudor style window latches. The latches can both be fixed to timber framed windows.
The stay measures 30 centimetres long and the handle curls up to a depth of 2 centimetres.
Having spent a long time looking for an artisan foundry we were pleased when we found this one. Using a team of highly skilled founders the foundry produces really top rate products for us. These stays are hand cast using the sand casting method. This traditional moulding process is thousands of years and very traditional. Once each piece is cast it is hand cleaned and hand polished. The stay is then assembled. Once assembled the stay is placed in very hot black oil. This again is a very old method of preserving cast iron. The hot oil permutates into the tiny holes on the surface of the iron. This gives the iron a protective surface. The oil prevents the stay from rusting excessively. The other function that the oil does for the stay is that it gives it an even colour. The colour of the stay will be from very dark grey to black. As each item is handmade you will notice that although they a similar they will not be identical
When you receive your delivery you will have the correct amount of fixings included. In this case, the fixings will be screws. The screws will be of an old cottage design with black slotted heads and a domed top.
We hope you have enjoyed looking at this product. We also have matching window latches available.
