George Hepplewhite was a remarkable English furniture maker, his light airy designs changed the direction of furniture making. American furniture makers quickly adopted his ideas and added exquisite inlays and veneering to their designs. Delicate oval brasses were central to the completion of a piece.
The patterns we use today are exact copies of antique American originals-the themes are very much in keeping with the birth of our nation. You will see eagles, revolutionary themes like cannons and flags, and harvest motifs like wheat and fruit, representing the bounty of the New World.
Horton Brasses' Hepplewhite drawer pulls reflect such artistry. Each intricate embossed oval-shaped pull is stamped and finished individually and captures English cabinet maker George Hepplewhite's distinctive style.
