This pair is nickel-plated. They have a pewter color, however. We have only dusted this set and have left the natural darkness, or patina, intact. The pattern is typical Victorian with a ribbon-like top, the flower in the center, and decorated ring-pull. The mounting post is in the center back. Measurements are 1 3/4 inches vertical and across. There is a hole at the bottom of the back plate for securing with a screw or brad so the pull will not rotate or turn as it is used. Screws included.
