Hi all! This is an Arts and Crafts Cellarette I’m building (almost done!). I’ll write a longer thread about my trials and tribulations (the inside is more complicated than the outside… although I screwed up plenty on the outside, too!) after it’s all finished and I have better pictures.

I don’t think the pulls I originally purchased are going to work well, but I’m stuck as to what pull and what layout to use. Here is the piece along with some possibilities photoshopped in. Any preferences? Also, any links to a particular knob/pull would be appreciated. I’ve looked at most of the usual suspects – Lee Valley, Horton Brasses, Paxton and a few others. But maybe you all have some sources I don’t.

Thanks in advance! [hmmmm… for some reason, my photos are a bit cut off, hopefully you get the idea… I”ll try to fix them]

the two pulls.

design wise, this 2 pulls draws the attention to the seahorse image, whereas the other pulls draws the attention to the actual pull.

the slim pulls also makes this look a bit too straight lined, whereas the 2 pulls give a bit more character, and in this piece balances real nice.

I agree that the two pulls look best with the seahorse.

Thanks for the responses. I think those pulls are about 3 1/2”... any ideas where to find larger arts/crafts style pulls? The ones I’ve photoshopped are a little boring.

wider pulls

[ahh, there’s a better image!]

edit: Maybe these -
wider ac pulls

Have your say...
