If replacing drawer handles, check distance between holes
Premium Chippendale Drawer Pulls are beautifully made of solid brass with nice weight and sharp detail. No-polishing is necessary, as finish is lacquered to stay shiny. The quality is excellent. The common size and favorite style complement both antique and vintage furniture. Two posts are permanently connected to backplate. Easy to grip swan neck bail.
This Chippendale design was a favorite style from the late 18th century. The familiar maple leaf pattern backplate is indicative of the bold shape backplates Chippendale used on his furniture.
The 20th century colonial revival period brought these furniture handles back into the mainstream. They were used on chests, bureaus, bedroom sets, dining room furniture and Governor Winthrop desks.
