Acanthus Hardware - Classic Beauty

Posted by John on 1/5/2011
The acanthus leaf design is a classic design that has been around for more than 2000 years. Greek and Roman columns were often adorned with acanthus leaves to add beauty and symmetry to their designs. According to Wikipedia, "In Ancient Greek architecture acanthus ornament appears extensively in the capitals of the Corinthian and Composite orders, and applied to friezesdentilsand other decorated areas." Following is a a photo of one example:


 

The Acanthus Family of cabinet hardware from Hickory Hardware Belwith continues in this classical tradition. The Acanthus Family was designed in the original Belwith-Keeler Brass design studios in Grand Rapids, MI. These knobs and pulls come in two different finishes, Kensington Brass and Wellington Bronze. Either finish is a great complement to any classic and traditional designed kitchen or high end piece of furniture.

The knobs, pulls and backplates are all made of solid cast brass and are all hand finished. The knobs come in either a 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" diameter and can be married with a 1-1/4" backplate. The pull is has a 96 mm (3.77") center to center distance with an overall length of 6-3/8", The pulls/handles can be used on large drawers or cabinet doors due to their relative large size.
