Stunning Bronze Double Door Handles, hard life pair
We have had these double door handles knocking around the workshop for at least 5 years. A couple of months ago we decided that it was about time we had a go at refurbishing them. They have a hard life. The hand hold parts are fine. We took them to bits and polished them, they are clear of serious defects apart from a couple of gouges to the bosses where they connect to the backplates. The backpates are what might be called 'characterful' despite many hours with the 'wet and dry' they stilll edxibit a rather splendid collection of pitting, scratches, gouges dents, bumps and sundry other character marks. Despite this the handles are structurally sound and perfectly usable .Definitely too good for the scrap bin. Special handles for a special pair of doors. We actually think they look rather good if a bit rustic. Made by Gibbons of Wolverhampton to boot!!
