This Eastlake Windsor Pattern lever door bell is completely lost wax cast (same method as fine jewelry-making). This bell is mounted on the interior side of a door, and is then activated by a lever handle on the outside of the door. Standard finish is the hi-lo brass finish, or darker oil rubbed bronze finish is available. Standard Hi-Lo finish will blend with existing old hardware. The matching lever handle to activate this bell is sold separately, in case you may already have an original lever handle.
The Lost Wax cast brass Windsor pattern door push plate is popular. Even outside the Windsor suite, this could stand alone for its beauty & clarity of detail. This fine pattern was created by the Reading Hardware Co. Whether for home or commercial use, it's a show-stopper. In our showroom, visitors always touch this Windsor door plate to feel its detail.
