Colonial Drawer Handles offer a bold appearance and impressive style to furniture drawers. Significantly sized backplate is eye catching. When used on antique furniture, the generous size is particularly useful in concealing scarring left by previous pulls. Handle has a standard 3" boring to fit many drawers. It is solid brass with a living finish. The brass will naturally age over time producing a lovely patina.
Colonial drawer handles are realistically reproduced to match historic designs. Classic bold shape, crisp detail and Chippendale influence make these furniture pulls ideal replacements on antiques.
Boring: distance between center of mounting hole to center of adjacent mounting hole.
If replacing handles: replacement-handle-boring must match actual boring measurement in drawer.
Overall Size: width and height of handle at widest point.
Attaching Chippendale Pulls
Posts, bail and backplate are separate, assemble when mounting.
Insert one post into backplate and position on drawer front. Insert screw, from drawer interior, through mounting hole and screw into back of post (do-not tighten).
Insert bail in mounted post, add second post to other end of bail, insert second post through backplate, continue as before.
Once together and in place, tighten screws.
Pulls are secured using 8-32 machine screws. Length supplied is determined by manufacturer. While supplied screw length is generally useful, occasionally a different size is required. Please let us know if you need a specific length. To determine the correct size: measure wood thickness and add 1/4".
I like them I need 10 more but was looking for something less brassy. Do you have any suggestions?
Ordered pulls, casters, and escutcheons. All worked perfectly.
Very good hardware
I have ordered many pieces of hardware from Paxtons for approximately 12 years. Pulls, knobs, and furniture locks. I'm completely happy with everything. A local Amish man builds furniture for me, hardware from Paxtons has been the perfect finishing touch.
