Craftsman Mission Pulls are replicas of the famous Gustav Stickley style. The shapely rectangular backplate with v shaped handle defines much of the hardware used on Mission furniture. This early 1900's style complements chests, servers and cabinets from this Arts and Crafts era.
The quality is excellent, made of heavy forged brass with a hammered surface. Distinct handle swings from two permanently attached posts. Antique copper finish simulates original hardware from this period.
Care is required when installing screws. These screws are the best match for these handles. However the screw can easily be damaged if the hole is not properly prepared.
The best practice is to first drill a pilot hole. Use a drill bit slightly smaller than the overall width of the screw, including threads, to drill the hole. Then use a steel screw, the same size as brass screw, to “cut threads” in pilot hole, by screwing steel screw into and then out of hole.
