Style: Old World
Origin: Made in USA
Centuries in the making.
These handles are handcrafted in our workshop from Ash, a light colored hardwood. Each handle has two 3/8 bolt connections for fastening through the wall of the casket with a nut & washer. The design is inspired by the bow tie shapes of door pulls and handles from the "Old World." This very same type of handle may have appeared on a Carriage House door in 16th century England.
Each handle is sealed with pure tung oil. The handle can be used as is, or finished again with any type of contemporary oil-based or water-based stain, varnish, latex, or lacquer finish.
