Description

A set of two large glass push-pull door handles of simple rectangular form, each with a rectangular cut-out and bronze-finished hardware, second half 20th century, European. Substantial statement pieces, made of thick handcrafted art glass in deep amber. The high-quality hardware is made of aluminium, with a deep bronze finish. The components are currently set up to use the handles either side of a single door, possibly a glass door considering the size of the original spacing, however you could consult your fitter to enable them to work on thicker doors, or alongside one another on double doors if you wish. The amber colour is interesting and, as you can see, the depth of tone appears lightest where light can pass through the glass, deepening as the glass is moved towards its background (illustrated by the contrast in images 2 and 3). The images are taken in natural light from the left. The handles appear to have been just lightly used, and are in very nice original condition. The glass is handmade and each piece is unique, with minor variations such as small bubbles near the surface. There are minor signs of wear, as one might expect, including a few very light surface scratches; see images (7-9) for examples of detail and overview. All hardware works well. Approximate dimensions: Each piece of glass H 20cm x W 16cm x D 3cm. Bronze sleeve 3.5cm The depth from the face of the door to the front face of the handle is approximately 6.5cm (each side). Please be aware that the thickness of the glass makes these heavy pieces that will require suitable installation.
