Some pieces of furniture from the early to mid 20th Century were functional and rather plain. Those pieces were purchased by newly married couples or middle class working people whose main focus was not their furniture. Today, we love these old pieces with their character and history. On some of these pieces of furniture we find the plain steel swing pull. It consists of five parts: the swing bail, two eye bolts, and two small back plates behind the eye bolts.
The steel bail is 3 3/4 inches wide and hangs from its eye bolts 1 3/8 inches. It does not lay flat, but bows in the middle. Its ears point out and insert into the two eye bolts, creating 3-inch hole centers. Each eye bolt is approximately 1 1/4 inches long and has a nut. (When the eye bolts are inserted into the drawer and fastened on the back side with the nut, the bail is secured into place.)
Each eye bolt has a 7/8-inch round stamped-brass back plate. These little ones have been dinged through the years.
If you want to re-create the nostalgic 1930s and 1940s, this plain-Jane is perfect. We have cleaned the pull. Nuts are included.
