This four-hole styled handle, which was used on about any kind of cabinet, door, window, and chest, has through the years come in various sizes and materials. One can still find this style in imported light-weight metal. Finding the old cast-iron ones, however, is a challenge.
This handle is a bit larger than standard size, and possibly was used on a heavy drawer. It is heavy cast iron with a slight hint of a once-upon-a-time copper coating. We date this piece to the first twenty years of the 20th Century.
The length of the entire handle is 5 inches. The mounting plates measure 1 3/8 inches by 3/4 inch. Each plate has two screw holes. The distance between the holes from one plate to the other is 4 1/4 inches. The distance of the grip, enough room for four fingers, is 3 inches. The handle projects 1 1/4 inches from the surface.
Screws will be provided.
