The curves and arabesques on this door handle betray its probable origian as designed by the great Belgian architect and designer Victor Horta. The design was discovered in a shop, ‘Au Siffleur’ which is one of the undiscovered treasures of Brussels. In family ownership for close on 150 years, the shop (the name means ‘The Whistler’) is a treasure trove of historic objects in the up-and-coming Marolles quarter of the city. While the owners are eccentric, the shop itself is an Aladdin’s cave of retro treasures, including this lever handle, of a design attributed to Horta. While the original is in satin nickel, the design can also be made in all the standard izé finishes.
