Arts and Crafts furniture became popular in the early 1900s. Gustav Stickley, William Morris, and the Roycrofts changed furniture design radically and that influence continues to this day. Designers moved away from the flamboyance of the Victorian era towards function, durability and strong design. Joinery was often exposed, and oak was the dominant wood. Original hardware was hammered and very dark in color. More popular today than ever, this hardware flies off our shelves.
Horton Brasses' Arts and Crafts drawer pulls encapsulate this simplicity. Although modern craftsmanship shapes each pull, timeless designs still pervade each shape, with faithful use of period patterns and shapes. Designed for several applications, Horton Brasses' Arts and Crafts drawer handles offer a choice of angular mission and rounded ring pull styles.
Good Value & Attractive., November 27, 2015 By Dryad Studios (Green Forest, Ar, AR)
With the trend toward inflated prices on quality pulls, these stand out as a reasonable value for the quality and appearance. I have MANY other pulls that I prefer on our Arts & Crafts Bureaus and Chests....but have a difficult time with the $25-45, or even $75-110 cost. With 18 pulls on a large 9 drawer Bureau.... the cost becomes prohibitive. Most pulls in the $$ range of these are obviously poorly cast and clumsy. These fill a niche....they are pleasing to the eye and touch.The screws going through the drawer on the bail mounts is a plus. I wonder when pulls with 4 small screws on the face will start to loosen or come off....50 years ??? We have used lots of these. Thanks Horton Brasses.
