2 Art Nouveau Enameled Copper Vintage Drawer Knob Pulls.
This is a spectacular, matched pair of drawer pulls with classic Art Nouveau style and grace. The white petals look like 3-leaf clovers and they are shaped to follow the lines of the scalloped edges. The rich look of the enamel offers pearlized white with swirls of pale gray, soft blue and other undertones that truly resemble mother of pearl. The dark cobalt blue background is such a deep color that it is almost black.
The heads are heavy, crafted of enameled copper, possibly over a non-magnetic base. The edges of the designs and seams show varying thicknesses of copper. The threaded bolt stems appear to be a copper clad metal, since they are magnetic and copper alone would likely be too soft for the purpose.
The face of each knob is about 1 3/8” diameter and the decorative head is about 1” deep. The threaded bolts are 1 5/8” long and the full length is almost 2 3/4" long.
Condition: they appear to be all original; no crazing; a couple very small, minor edge chips in the enamel; no missing decoration; a nice patina.
This is a beautiful set, perfect for a vanity, a nightstand or single drawer table anywhere in a home or office. They are unique and will stand out enough to draw attention to a special piece, without overpowering the style or ambience of the area!
