1 Antique Railroad Spike Handle
Left Side Sealed Finish - 4" between post centers with 1/2" spacers
Create the perfect look by buying the exact amount you need for your decorating project or a gift set!
These are wonderful clear-coated handles designed from antique railroad spikes. These high carbon steel nails were originally made for the Southern Pacific Railroad in the late 1800s (circa 1880s) for the steam train tracks. A very unusual usage that makes the perfect gift for a Railroadiana collector or old train enthusiast, these are rustic and primitive antiques that look great in a hunting lodge, farm cabin, stable, garden, etc.These are our "original" sealed finish, with all of the weathered iron patina intact, and they are perfect for antique farmhouse restoration, reclaimed lumber projects, and other rustic applications where the irregular hammer marks and beautiful patina will enhance the primitive charm of the decor. Other colors, sizes, and matching railroad spike decor are available in our Etsy store.
Handles are individually hand-crafted by our metal artist right here in Southern Oregon, so some variation occurs, with a 1.75" - 2" projection and a set of 2" mounting screws (.25" across) - perfect for 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch wood, and up to 1" thick. Around 6" long, and each weighing about 15 ounces with hardware. Double coated with a clear coat of enamel for extra protection of the natural antique patina and weather resistance. Hardware is included- pre-installed 2" mounting posts, 1" spacers, washers, and nuts, as pictured.
Great when used for screen door handles, yard and garden gate pulls, sliding barn doors, tool sheds, quaint outhouses, attic loft hatches, pantry, wine cellar, storm, or root cellar entrances, and other similar architectural design elements. Also good for adding a special touch to vintage and antique style furnishings by using them as drawer knobs, dresser pulls, cupboard handles, ranch offices and rustic desks, etc.
Please note: When measuring your furniture it is important to measure from the center of one hole to the center of the other to get the exact distance needed for your handle mounting posts. If you have any questions, or need a custom size, we are always happy to help!

Perfect for our recycled timber barn doors. And made it all the way to Australia fast.

These are awesome! Exactly what I was looking for. One thing to note is check the width of your door and compare with the provided screw length. It's fixed, so I had to countersink to get the nut on. Would buy again!
