We have not cleaned this pull, but have left it as is. The patina remains intact, reflecting a pull from the 1940s or 1950s. The pull is made of stamped metal with a brass/bronze finish. It could be cleaned and polished.
This pull represents the Chippendale era. The popular “pineapple” motif with its top knot, wings, and tail have been around for decades. Because the swing bail is plain, we date this furniture pull to pre World War II and shortly after.
The pull measures 4 1/4 inches across and 2 inches vertically. The hole centers are 2 1/2 inches apart. Original screws will be included.
