The William and Mary style came to be known for its tall and slender proportions. Furniture got lifted up onto delicately turned legs, and hardware became decorative as well as functional. Cast brass was becoming more popular, with exceptional detail paid to escutcheons and drop pulls. Our collection thoroughly captures all of the variations of this style with over 100 items to add just the right touch to your project.
Sack's Fine Points of Furniture shows a similar escutcheon on a Queen Anne small desk-on-frame, c. 1720-1740, pg. 141. This desk has withstood 200 years of use due to the quality of the craftsmanship and materials.
