Seller: the_paddocks_collectables (7,996) 100%, Location: Norwich, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 401222842947 Serpent & Torch Handles This is a pair of very splendid, door pull handles. Not only are they large and heavy but they are a most magnificent design. Each handle is a torch with a flame, with a separate serpent's body wrapped around it. The handles are 17 inches 44cm long and weigh over 2kg each. Very striking architectural antiques. I believe they are cast bronze. Originally I thought they were Art Deco, Egyptian revival, design handles. After further research I would suggest the handles display the staff of Aesculapius, the God of medicine, with Prometheus torch, the symbol of knowledge. I wonder if they were originally made for a scientific or medical meeting hall? These are original items, they carry the patina of use and wear, but there is no damage. Perfect for an imposing, large, double door entrance, or on either side of a heavy single door.
