A fabulous stamped brass oval plate handle, made from original press tools right here in England. These are a true replica of late 18th Century designs still manufactured in their original method. These type of handles are very popular with restorers and repairers as the shape of plate is often referred to as a 'cover-all' in that it easily masks earlier fitting marks and drillings.
A note regarding the antique brass finish – These products are created in a traditional foundry using solid forged or cast brass, which is then treated with a solution to naturally oxidize the metal. This dulls the brass finish to give the item an authentic appearance. Note that by nature of the way in which this is achieved, the finish may differ slightly from batch to batch, and may be darker than the image shown. If this is the case, and you would prefer the finish to be a lighter-coloured brass, they can be polished up with a metal cleaner such as ‘Brasso’. This is possible because the finish is left un-lacquered for authenticity
