These were pretty nice. I was a bit skeptical being they were made from stamed sheet metal, but they were very well crafted and were quite strong. The client was happy with them and they were very easy to install with 4 #8 black wood screws. Just what I needed.
These were just what we needed to complete the look for our casket.
Customer service was the best I have ever had. Handles were just what I needed and look great I wish they would send screws for the handles Received order in just a few days
The handles were not as solid as I was hoping. They seemed rather cheaply made. I hope they will hold up once installed.
I understand what you mean, Chris. These handles are made from stamped steel and have been used on caskets since the 1920s. While they are suitable for casket handles, these handles are not as heavy duty as you might expect a cast drawer pull or the handle you might see on a vintage travel chest.
