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.
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.
