The Handel Company opened its own foundry in 1902. The main purpose of this was foundry was to produce bases for Handel’s lamps. However, with the extra capabilities came new ideas. In 1906 Handel launched its own line of metal products. The line included trays, bookends, candlesticks, and general desk accessories. Thankfully, their lamps were so successful that Handel didn’t have to rely on their metal products. By 1914 everything but bookends ceased production.
Despite being rare and interesting, Handel’s metal products don’t have much of a following today. A nice bookend set might sell for around $250. They make an interesting accompaniment to a desk with a nice Handel lamp. However, the market just doesn’t care much about this series right now.
