Mission Ring Pulls for drawers are replicated from early 1900's Arts & Crafts hardware. These classic ring pulls have a narrow backplate to fit smaller cabinet and furniture drawers. Reflective of the Craftsman movement, surface is hammered displaying an organic feel.
Simple rectangular backplate has hammered surface indicative of this era. Well made of solid brass with a deep copper finish. Circular ring pull is held by a center post, which is permanently attached to backplate.
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.
I made a computer desk for a client using an Arts and Crafts design. These pulls were perfect for the pull out keyboard tray. They are very well made and the oiled bronze finish was very nice looking. I would definitely buy again.
