This Eastlake teardrop pull is different in several ways than most others. The over-all piece is heavier and larger. Instead of the drop hanging from a yoke-style hinge, this one is topped with a brass ball finial that snaps into a heavy brass post head. The ball rotates within the post head.
Another difference is the post construction. The brass post which is a one-piece gizmo with a small back plate inserts into the drawer 1/2 inch. Then a heavy brass bolt is inserted from the back of the drawer to screw into the receiver. This bolt is 1 1/8 inches long.
The entire drop from ball to the tip of the base finial measures 2 1/2 inches. The painted teardrop is 1 3/4 inches long and 1 1/2 inches across the belly.
At one time, some touch-up to the black paint was done. This higher quality pull no doubt went on a piece of expensive furniture some time between 1870 and 1890.
