Colonial Drawer Handles complement antique and vintage furniture. These Chippendale period pulls have the tell tale large flat backplate that date from the 18th century. They make excellent replacements on furniture, where past hardware has left scarring on drawer fronts.
The appearance of colonial drawer handles is impressive adding a bold appearance to traditional furniture. Boring size is 2-1/2" on center. Made of solid brass with a living finish. Over time they will age in appearance.
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.
Attach 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".
