Oval plate handle
A fabulous stamped brass oval plate handle, made from original press tools at the Armac Brassworks. A selection from the Bentley Collection that is offered in a unique finish known as 'Olde English Brass', a lacquered finish that replicates an aged shine, as well as the more traditional Armac antique finish. Photograph shows the Antique finish. For an example of the OEB finish please see the 2 oval plates that precede this design in our listings. These are a true replica of late 18th Century designs still manufactured in their original method. The process for stamping cold metal shapes for furniture decoration was patented in Birmingham in 1779! These type of handles are very popular with restorers and repairers as the shape of plate is often referred to as a 'cover-all' in that it easily masks earlier fitting marks and drillings. Both Sheraton and Chippendale used these handles extensively into the early years of the 19th Century.
