Double Pair of Large Serpentine Bronze Door Handles

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Amazing large-scale double-pair of Italian Art Deco door handles or pulls in serpentine form.

Their shape, scale and form prefigure designs by Nanda Vigo from the late 1980s.

The bronze tubular handle itself is just under 1-1/2 inches diameter.

The round backplates are just under 2-1/2 inches diameter.

These handles are intended to be used as left and right on both sides of the double doors, glass or otherwise, so there is a mirror image match and a reverse match.

They could also be mounted to the wall in a bath or shower for support getting in and out.
