Drop handle plates can be made from some zinc alloy, and the-best-to-use finish is antique brass finish. This finish simulates aged brass, which is essentially about a chemical process in which the workpiece gets chemically darkened, and is consequently given an antique look. Drop handle plates can also be made of wrought iron. In this case you can also apply various finishes similar to antique brass finish, which will give the steel a very interesting look.
