Colonial Revival Drawer Pulls

1920-1950
Colonial Revival Drawer Pulls represent American's desire to have historically designed furniture representing the founding of this country. As the economy slowed with the onset of the depression a new smaller and conservative, machine made style of furniture was developed. Refereed to as the Colonial revival period this furniture often used small stamped brass pulls known as Depression era center post handles and pared down traditional 18th century designs. These factory made pieces were often produced of mahogany, a signature wood of this era.
