The flashed copper finish on all kinds of hardware was vastly popular from 1900 to 1920. The hardware item, whether it was for a door, window, or a piece of furniture, was often stamped steel that had been coated with a layer of copper and then finished with a black lacquer flash. This drawer pull, however, is brass with a flashed treatment. The swing bail is cast brass. This treatment over brass makes this an unusual piece and a process that we have not seen before in furniture hardware.
The back plate measures 4 1/8 inches horizontally and one inch vertically. The total drop including the bail is 1 7/8 inches. The hole centers are 3 inches apart. Screws feed into the posts from the back of the drawer. The original screws are included.
To have the change to handle unique hardware that is decades old is why we love our work!
