One can’t tell from the photo, but this Chippendale pull is larger than most of the others. It is also older and is all brass. Chippendale pulls have been used on furniture for decades; we guess this one comes from out of the early 20th Century, 1920s or 1930s. It is a pure Chippendale pattern, meaning that it has the pineapple top knot, up-turned wings, and fanned tail. The bail is all brass.
The brass back plate measures 4 inches horizontally and 3 1/4 inches vertically. The hole centers are 3 inches apart. The posts extend beyond the back plate 1/4 inch. They will need to be embedded into the wood. Screws are inserted from the back of the drawer to thread into the posts.
We have not cleaned this pull. It is very dark from ages of exposure. This patina is often desired rather than a polished brassy piece that may look new. The patina is evenly distributed and looks very good.
This is an exceptional pull. Screws will be provided.
