This vertical pull comes out of the 1930s and early 1940s. The furniture it graced is often called “Waterfall.” This furniture style was inexpensive furniture with an unique style. Each piece had curved or rounded edges and was often accentuated with decorative hardware with a high-lighted piece of bakelite. That piece of bakelite ranged in colors from a light amber (yellow) to a deep rust brown.
This piece has the flowing lines of the Waterfall style. It was likely used on a small door. The center portion of the handle, however, is painted the popular rusty brown. There is no bakelite plastic connected with this item.
The pull measures 4 1/2 inches long and 2 inches wide at the top and 3/4 inch at the bottom. The hole centers are 4 inches apart. The pull is stamped metal with a brass-tone finish.
Screws will be provided.
