Original Antique Replacement Handles

Replace missing or broken antique handles with original OEM handles!

Faucet Handle Information: Faucets are something like auto parts: there are dozens of different  brands and 1000’s of different models with almost no parts interchangeability between brands. The picture above shows just a tiny fraction of our selection of handles. There is no “standard” faucet handle!   In most cases, you will need to send us one of your original handles so we can match it with handles from our extensive collection. We will first find handles that fit your faucet stems and then try to select the closest match for condition, color, and print font on the “hot” and “cold” lettering.
   All handles are original antiques and will show normal signs of use and wear. Brass handles and porcelain handles with brass spuds can be polished or plated for an additonal charge. Zinc handles will usually have varying degrees of pitting as zinc does not hold up as well as brass. Zinc handles are generally not worth replating as they are usually only found on newer, less valuable faucets.

How to Order:
1.) Send us your Pre-1960 original handle or faucet stem. (Please don’t send newer handles, we won’t have anything to fit faucets made after 1960.)
 (Click here for shipping & packing information.)
2.) We will attempt to match your handle with one(s) from our stock. Though we have about a 80% success rate in finding matching handles, we do not guarantee that we will find a handle, only that we will try our best.
PLEASE NOTE!: Despite the size of our collection, we rarely have more than two or three handles of the same style. If you need a matched set of handles you should consider reproduction replacements.
3.) We will call with a price and ask for your billing information at this time. If no original handle is found, we will outline the available options for using reproduction handles.
