But it was years ago. Just for laughs if you get the exact make and model and google you may find a replacement handle. But it may be cheaper to chrome yours. There are shops for powder coating too. The paint is put on a different way, electrically, it is very chip resistant. I think you could probably get that powder coated cheap as well.

Pardon my input, just that it would be out a few weeks so the time to consider restoring the handle is before you load it with cigars. Good Luck whatever you decide.

What a great idea! I've got an old Crosley just like this, but I use it for refrigerating beverages

Almost done. Door handle needs to be powdercoated and I am still looking for a paintbrusher to make it a piece of art, but this is what it looks like now





I still need to sort the top drawers and put brand by brand, size by size but you get the idea.
