are copied from authentic 18th century patterns. This historic style was originally designed by the English cabinet maker Thomas Chippendale, who famously worked in England and wrote the Gentleman and Cabinet Maker's Directory in 1754. Not only popular in England, Chippendale was also favored in America. The quality of our period antique Chippendale Handles is evident, being made of solid brass with beveled edges and cast bails. Bails swing easily from posts, and have trunnions on each end, which acts as a stop to keep bail from hitting backplate. Use on Chippendale and Colonial Revival furniture. Both reproduction and antique Chippendale Handles are seen on a variety of hardware, such as bureaus, highboys, tables and chest on chest.
