Cast brass back plate and handle and is done in the Victorian style with an antique finish. The back plate is 2 1/2" high by 4 1/4" wide and mounts with 3" centers or two holes that measure 3" from the center of one hole to the center of the other. In our antiquing process, each item is treated with a chemical process that 'ages' the brass giving the pieces the rich patina seen on antiques. Each piece is done by hand and all of the items from your order are done at the same time to ensure that all of your pieces have the same finish. Antiquing may delay shipping by two to three days. Please note that the actual color of the antiqued item may differ slightly from the above picture due to variations with computer monitors.
