This large drawer pull has a beautiful dark patina. It could be because of years of oxidation or the manufacturer may have put a mahogany shade of sealer on this stamped brass pull. We feel it is original as is. One could polish this one to a bright brass. The pull has fancy brass posts and a heavy wide decorated steel bail.
The back plate measures 5 3/4 inches horizontally and 2 1/2 inches vertically. The total drop with the bail is 2 3/4 inches. The hole centers are 3 inches apart. Nuts are included for the posts.
Our suggestion is that you leave this one as is. It is awesome!
