This dark black pair looks like cast iron, with a steel ring. However, we feel the pulls are actually brass that has been originally painted black. The 1 1/4 inch round rings hang from floret back plates—a vase-looking piece with flowers. The floret back plate measures 1 3/4 inches long and fans out at the top to one inch. There is a small hole at the base of the back plate for a brad to secure the pull so it won’t slip or twirl. The drop from the mounting post (behind the back plate center) is one inch. Screws are included.
