Hepplewhite Furniture Handles have a distinct embossed Urn & Festoon pattern. Originating in England during the end of the 1800's., these drawer pulls crossed the Atlantic to become popular in America.    2-1/2" boring is a typical Federal furniture handle size.

Hepplewhite furniture handles are made of brass. They have a living finish which is polished but will age over time. Backplates are stamped in accordance with period techniques. This elegant design adds distinct character to Federal furniture.

Measure Antique Hepplewhite Pulls

  • 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 Hepplewhite 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.
    • Thread size of machine screws is generally 8-32. 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".
