About 1727-1786. 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 on our antique cabinet hardware today are exact copies of American originals—the themes are very much in keeping with the birth of our nation. Throughout our Hepplewhite hardware, you will see eagles, revolutionary themes like cannons and flags, and harvest motifs like wheat, fruit, representing the bounty of the New World. Hepplewhite's influence is seen in this selection of pulls, handles, and classic knobs.
