This sash (or window) lift was placed at the bottom of the window and used to raise the window. The lift is not very large, just enough to place one finger under the lip and pull. It is steel with a copper coating, finished off with a black flashing. This treatment was done during the first twenty years of the 1900s.
The back plate is beveled, projecting from the surface slightly. It measures 1 5/8 inches by 1 inch. The hole centers are one inch apart. The lift projects from the surface 3/4 of an inch.
Because of the sporadic spraying of the black lacquer, no two pieces are alike. This piece is a used lift, but the finish is in good condition. There are minor surface scratches. The lift has darkened over the years.
Screws will be included.
