Description

Part of the beautiful Louis XIV range of door furniture, these very highly decorative door handles are hand-crafted and cast from premium grade, solid brass.

Best remembered today as the king who built the Palace of Versailles, Louis XIV came to be called "the Sun King." Identifying himself with Apollo - the Greek god of the sun - he wanted his courtiers and the people of France to revolve around him in the same way as the planets revolve around the Sun and so he adopted that fiery firmament as the Royal Emblem and it became the epitome of style and good design.

These British made, authentic period handles can recreate an accurate historical scene in buildings of importance, whilst also putting that perfect finishing touch to areas of new interior design.
This handle can be used as either an exterior or interior door handle, but is normally fitted as an interior door handle, as it has no keyhole.

It can be supplied as either a solid brass door handle (choose from lacquered or unlacquered) or in one of the range of plated or applied finishes.

The plated and applied finishes range from both antique to contemporary, so will suit almost any style of decor. Choose from a range of brass, chrome and nickel finishes, in antique, polished or satin styles.

These handles are also available in gold or silver plate.

Silver door handles are available as either silver plated handles or antique silver door handles.

Gold door handles are available in either Titanium Gold or in Antique Gold Plate.

Titanium gold handles are supplied in a gold coloured PVD finish. PVD stands for “Physical Vapour Deposition”, this is a state-of-the-art process where molecules of hardwearing metals are deposited onto the handle surface. This microscopic layer protects the finish from discolouration. This protective layer makes this gold door handle especially suitable for use in normally high wear-and-tear situations, such as stately homes, public buildings, retail establishments, hotels and commercial premises.
An antique gold handle is plated in genuine 24 Ct gold. A stunning finish, supplied as special order only. Please contact us at the email address below for a quotation for gold plated door handles.
