This stout all-brass ring pull is ideal for a single drawer. This old piece has a small back plate (original) that adds a touch of class.
The 1 5/8 round ring hangs from a thick round post. The post is 1/2 inch round and projects from the surface 5/8 inch. The stem of the post inserts into the wood 3/4 inch. A heavy screw (original) is inserted from the back of the drawer to thread into the post.
The small back plate, which fits perfectly with the post, is stamped brass and 7/8-inch round.
The brass is dark and may be coated with a light varnish. It is hard to tell. It may have also darkened through the years to a very dark patina. It is beautiful as is. The ring pull is in excellent condition.
