We have not cleaned or polished this drawer pull. It has a dark, almost brown patina. There is also evidence that the pull may have been treated with a dark varnish. This probably was done at the factory. The airy, open back plate is cast brass. The highly decorated brass bail matches the plate exactly. All pieces are original. The bail swings from two fancy brass posts.
The back plate measures 4 1/2 inches horizontally and 2 inches vertically. The total drop including the bail is 2 3/4 inches. The hole centers are 3 inches apart. The bolts extend 1 1/4 inches beyond the back of the plate. Old square nuts are included.
