SET OF BRASS 19TH CENTURY BRITISH CABINET OR DRESSER DRAWER PULLS COMMEMORATING THREE FAMOUS NAPOLEONIC ERA BATTLES SET OF SIX COMPLETE PULLS:  This interesting set recently surfaced in an old estate.  It consists of six matching stamped brass drawer pulls embossed with a military themed panoply of arms and the surmounting banner is stamped with the names of three major Napoleonic Wars battles which resulted in significant British Navy victories Trafalgar in 1805, the Nile in 1798, and likely the First Battle of Copenhagen in 1801.  In all three of these engagements the British naval forces were led by Lord Admiral Horatio Nelson, so this design may well have been commissioned to commemorate his victories.   

I have not been able to determine when these were made, but they have all the character of 19TH Century English furniture hardware.  All six pulls are full form and are complete with the original plates, finger pulls, nuts and bolts, and are ready to be used as is to finish off a cabinet or dresser in your collection room.  All the plates have the design stamped in high relief, all are full form, and show no damage or wear save for a small hole in the face of one of the plates.   

This is a very attractive set and would be a nice addition to the sort of cabinet that many of us have to store the small pieces in our collections.  (0203) $50
