Brass Chest Lifts are often seen on the sides / ends of chests, boxes and dressers. These authentically styled lifting handles were used on Campaign furniture.Handles are mounted on each side of chest at a comfortable height to lift from. Historically brass chest lifts were used to carry furniture. Although these handles are exact replicas, brass is a naturally soft metal therefore we recommend lifting furniture from underneath. A special built in stop keeps handles from lifting more than 90 degrees.
We feel very lucky to have found this replacement for a broken antique chest lift. Amazingly it's an almost perfect match!
Never ordered from Paxton Hardware before. The prices were good and the products I ordered were excellent quality. I was very pleased and will definitely be shopping here again.
good customer service - shipped quickly. product quality is good - no seams or pits on casting, stamped escutcheons are crisp. only negative is that the screws are too small - larger heads are more more historically accurate because screws on handles that were meant to bear weight were heftier.
