Mission Ring Pulls for Cabinet Doors add Craftsman style to early 20th century furniture. Indicative of this era, the backplate is a simple rectangular shape with a circular ring pull. They are sized to fit many cupboard doors. The scale is pleasant and not overwhelming.
Each of these Mission ring pulls is authentically reproduced. The hammered surface, is beautifully textured, just wanting to be touched. Round ring pull is held by a center post, which is permanently attached to backplate. Constructed of brass with a deep copper finish. These replica handles mimic original Arts & Crafts style hardware.
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.
From casual inspection, these look much like the real hammered copper ring pulls they imitate. On closer inspection, you can tell they are cast, (metal unknown) and each is identical to the other. But if you're not making reproduction furniture, they serve fine. The color finish looks enough like aged hammered copper (complete with patina) that I am not ashamed to use them on built-in cabinetry.
