Boring: mounting measurement, center-hole to center-hole
When replacing existing handles always check boring-measurement
Vintage Bail Handles are a substantial handle with a satisfying grip. This authentic style was used during the Victorian and Colonial Revival eras. Use on furniture or cabinet drawers.
These heavily embossed vintage bail handles are cast brass, with a flat back. Drawer pull includes: brass bail, two brass rosettes and two brass plated eyebolts/posts. Finish is antique. It is darkened to look old. The antique finish is hand applied and may vary from one to the next. This slight variations in color provides a natural and more authentic appearance. 3" size fits many drawers.
Measure Bail Handles
Boring is the distance from center of mounting hole to center of adjacent mounting hole. If replacing handles on existing drawers, this is the most crucial measurement. More leeway is available when adding drawer pulls to new furniture or cabinets, as mounting holes can be drilled where needed.
Overall Size reflects: width and height of handle at widest point. Ideally a balanced relationship between drawer handle and drawer is best.
Bail Handles attach to drawer with eye bolts.
To Install: insert eyebolts through rosettes, then through holes on drawer front.
Insert handle into 2 eyebolts before pushing them into place.
Screw nuts on bolts and tighten from drawer interior.
The drawer pulls worked perfectly, especially for an old dresser with a curved front. Turnaround was fast, and price was fair. Thanks!
Shipping was fast, I called to fix a billing problem and they were very courteous and pleasant to deal with. Loved the product -- the eyelet screws for my bail handles were too short to go through my drawer, but that's all on me. Would order from these folks again for sure.
