bullet  Plastic Fantastic Fish Handles, good quality pair

back one page
go to the beginning of category: Knobs - mortice
Is all plastic bad plastic? Possibly but it certainly has it`s uses. Image the average bathroom, high humidity often causes problems with old door furniture so maybe this is the answer. How old are they? No idea but they are apparently from an old sea farer's estate and have been kept in a garage for the past 10 years. Can plastic items really be good quality?. Well take a look at the backplate image. These are made from what looks like turned and stained material and have had a thick brass wear layer let into either side. The handles themselves are heavy and have quality feel and the detail on the handles suggest hand finishing.We first thought they were made from Bakelite but the old reliable scratch and sniff test was inconclusive but it seems to be at least a similar thermoset plastic. Please note, these handles have been configured for a particular door. You can make them fit your door if you have a drill and 4mm tap or we can do it for you. Simply email us before or immediately after you place your order with the exact thickness of your door, we`ll even include some shims.
