HOME PROJECTS: Uncovering and refitting original features: BATHROOM DOOR HANDLE
I am a great believer in reinstalling and rediscovering original features of houses and in the entire process of doing them up, doing them respectfully and with their history in mind.
We currently have just two of the original 1950s doors remaining upstairs:
I could see that the original handles were there under lots of paint...
...and after four hours of paint stripper...
...I revealed the original Bakelite and metal handles.
Really really lovely and completely worth all the hard work!
