english clutch and brake lever

Today I was digging in the drawer of handlebar levers (wonder if this is the right word :roll: ) for some other reasons and came across with a pair I coldn´t resist about 15 years ago because of their beauty with the integrated chokelever, because you can use them for a 2cable brake and for their very good condicion. Now Dulcinea is finished and more aluminum style. I guess the chance that I will use them some day is about 5% like lots of things we store :lol:

I´d like to know, what it is I have here. Probably all of you know this logo:

I don´t know wether Triumph, BSA, Norton and stuff like that had the same national suppliers for these things. Surely you can tell me ...

The logo is for Doherty - they made brake and control levers for just about all 40's/50's/60's British bikes of all sizes and shapes. Genuine logo ones are more valuable, but plenty of recently manufactured copies readily available.
