Set of Four "General Washington" Brass Furniture Pulls
c. 1790s Federal Period, "General Washington" Portrait Furniture Pulls. Set of Four. Brass. Extremely Fine.
These four 2.5" x 3.5" matching set of decorative, historic Brass Furniture Pulls have a central portrait of "General Washington." They were attached to various pieces of furniture, made of brass which has darkened over the years. Curtain tiebacks with a similar designs were advertised in British furniture hardware catalogs in the early 1790s and this set appears to also date from about that era. They are all complete with bail handles and mounting screws. Individual examples typically bring in the $500 to $600 range. Acquiring a more valuable matched set of four is an important opportunity. (4 item set)
