Occasionally we run across an Eastlake pull where the teardrop does not have the black paint but, instead, looks more brown in color. This teardrop possesses a rich patina like a deep wood color. At close examination, it doesn’t appear to have ever been painted black.
The teardrop is of medium size. The drop from the brass hinge to the tip of the base finial is 2 1/4 inches. The wood part measures 1 1/2 inches vertically (without base finial) and 1 1/2 inches across the belly.
The drop hangs from a brass bolt post. The steel bolt is 2 1/4 inches long, but extends 1 3/4 inches beyond the back plate. The brass convex back plate is 1 5/8 inches round.
We have not cleaned or polished this pull. A dusting was all that was necessary. It is in very fine condition.
