Victorian Scroll Long Backplate WC Door Handle Pair Brass Effect
You pay for what you get
Cheap and cheerful, but ultimately very poor quality. Having used this category of handle on customers homes where low cost was a priority, I already had concerns about the robustness of the product (knock the handle and it breaks). Have fitted three bathroom handles - 1 was bent in box, and the grub screw broke on another. My advice is to buy a more expensive model and avoid this one.

Poor quality handle
Had to return handle as the spring didn't work in one handle and it just stuck down.
Also there were loads of areas on the handle where there was no brass at all, just big chunks of silver metal showing through.
Cheaper and better quality elsewhere.

Victorian scroll WC handle
Looks better than equivalents elsewhere, and, like so much at Screwfix, noticeably cheaper than all of them.
But, despite that, finish is good, decent quality spring to the handles (often a failing on such handles), and plenty of spare on the thumbturn spindle, which is easily cut to the right length.
On my varnished pine door it looks good and works flawlessly - I'm very pleased with the end result.
Although it costs more than a simple latch handle and a separate bolt, it's just as easy to fit, looks much neater, and in a year's time I'll not be thinking that I should have spent a few pounds more to get the neater finish.
