This is not old hardware. In my travels, this bar rail bracket was among a bunch of old hardware. It may have been used at one time. I placed it in the catalog, however, because it is a good solid piece that is fairly uncommon.
The highly decorated, Victorian patterned bracket, is cast brass and measures 12 3/4 inches long. It is made to hold a 2-inch brass rail. The arm measures 1 1/8 inches wide at the end, near the ring and 3 inches wide at the base. The back plate measures 4 3/4 inches vertically and 1 7/8 inches at the widest point.
A tear-drop finial hangs from the bracket. It also has a 2-inch circle that fits around the rail and inside the two-piece circles at the end of the bracket. The finial ring has a set screw to secure to the rail. When the finial is installed, the total width of the three rings or circles, that will encircle the rail, measures 1 3/8 inches. The finial measures 7 inches long, not including the ring. It varies from 1/2 inch to one inch wide.
The weight of the two pieces is two pounds. We will include 4 brass screws.
