This is a set of absolutely exquisite Waterfall handles. They are a family–all having stayed together. The sextet are to be used vertically. They must have come off of a piece of furniture with doors.
Waterfall furniture was a very popular choice in the 1930s and 1940s. The furniture pieces with curved or rounded edges supported a special, different kind of hardware—pieces made with bake lite attachments or accents. This set is an example of that.
Each of these handles are heavy brass that are 3 3/4 inches long. The hole centers are 3 inches. The bottom of the vertical handle has the Art Deco lines.
What makes this handle so different, however, is the bake-lite disc that fits behind the upper part of the handle. It fits like a washer (hole in the middle) around the neck of the handle that holds the furniture screw. It is the usual amber-color and measures 1 3/8 inches round.
Screws are included.
