Brass Door Pull, contemporary quality
In general we like to say that old door furniture is better quality than a lot of the new stuff, if there was poor quality door furniture in days of old then it hasn`t survived ... stands to reason I suppose. We are also happy to agree that there is good quality new door furniture out there but the prices for the really good stuff can make your eyes water. This item is no more than 30 years old. It was heavily tarnished so it has had an (outdoor) life. It is a quality item however, heavily cast from solid brass, its also versatile. We have listed this under door pulls but actually it could be used to operate a latch as it turns quite freely and has hole for a standard sized square spindle. We include a `tailor` spindle which, when fixed to the door stops the handle from rotating. So, you decide, door pull or door handle (or door knocker)? Not an antique but very good quality nonetheless. Diameter of ring 10.5cm
