Large and impressive brutalist bronze door handles. European, mid-20th century (1960s or 1970s).
The handles are heavily textured and appear to have been cast from part of a tree - possibly silver birch bark, with its characteristic horizontal lines. Both pieces are the same, with very slight differences in patina, and can be turned to use on a pair of doors or opposite sides; they are fitted to the door using two long bolts (not supplied) as suit the thickness of your door and the weight of the metal.
We also have a matching letterbox cover; escutcheon or keyhole plate and a double bell push (which will require a little work). If these additional pieces could be of interest, please drop us a note.
The items in this set have been left as found, unpolished; they each show differing tones from various areas of use over time with an overall nice dark patina.
- Main plate of the handle is H 19.5cm x W 14cm.
- The depth from the face of the door to the front face of the handle is approximately 8 cm.
- L 29.4cm x W 7.2cm x D 2cm (approx)
- H 5.5cm x W 5.5cm x D 01cm
- Diameter of keyhole 32mm (designed to fit a cylinder lock such as Yale or similar)
