This Eastlake teardrop is of medium size. These early (1870-1890) teardrop pulls all look very much alike, but many vary slightly from one another. Some drops are slender, while others are fat bellied and more rotund. This drop is in between slender and rotund. The painted black wood drop has a shiny finish.
The drop hangs from a brass yoke-like hinge and post head. From the hinge to the tip of the brass finial at the base is 2 1/2 inches. It is approximately 1 1/4 inches across the belly. The steel bolt is 2 inches long. It projects from behind the back plate 1 1/2 inches. There is a square nut included. The brass convex back plate is 1 1/2 inches round.
The original paint is intact and the entire pull is in very good condition.
