Antique Brass Chest Lifts are copies of traditional lifting handles. The appearance matches those from the 19th century. The handle typically mounts, at a comfortable height to lift from, on each end of a chest or trunk. They are often used on Campaign furniture and travel trunks. Also they are suitable handles for chests, boxes and dressers.
These lifting handles are brass with a built in stop. Thus the handle can swing up, to 90 degrees. They are exact replicas of originals. However we do-not suggest picking up heavy pieces with them. Brass is a naturally soft metal, therefore when moving furniture, we recommend lifting it from underneath.
