gwmwio o EDWARD J'LE'LLLSON Patented Aug. 14, 1928.




Application filed May 14, 1925. Serial No. 30,386.

This invention relates to an improvement in a drawer pull, and more particularly to the manner of uniting the handle of the drawer pull with suitable escutcheons.

The method usually employed prior to this invention has been to cast the handle and the escutcheons integral, which is a rather ditlicult process and requires the use el' expensive dies.

The primary object of this invention is to draw the handle of a drawer pull from a wrought metal rod, and secure the escutchcons to each end of the handle, so that the completed pull has the same appearance as a pull made from a casting.

Other objects of this invention will appear from aconsideration of the followin description, taken in connection with the drawings which form a part thereof. and in which Fig. 1 is a view in elevation of a drawer pull made in accordance with this invention and provided with a single escutcheon;

Fig. 2 is a view taken in the direction'of the arrow 2 in Figure 1;

Fig. 3 is a side elevation of one leg of the drawer pull;

Fig. 4' is a bottom plan view of one of the escutcheons;

Fig. 5 is a sectional view taken along the line 55 of Figure 4;

Fig. 6 is a sectional view taken along the line (36 ofFigure 4, and illustrating the escutcheon as applied to one of the legs of the drawer pull; and

Fig. 7 is a view similar to Figure 6 showing the escutcheons rigidly secured to the drawer pull.

Referring to the drawings, the reference numeral 10 is employed to designate the handle of a drawer pull. which handle is made of drawn bronze. The legs 11 and 12 of the handle are threaded to receive nuts (not shown) by which the pull is secured to the drawer in the usual manner. The legs 11 and 12 are integral with the handle 10, but are defined therefrom by means of the annular shoulder 13. v

Formed in the legs 11 and 12 are keys 14,

- integral with the legs and formed by pinching up the material as indicated for example in Figure 3,. These keys 14 are diametrically arranged, and are preferably in the plane of the center of the handle 10. Mounted upon the legs 11 and 12, and resting against the shoulders 13 are escutcheons 15, here shown as having a rectangular base 16, and concave side walls 17. Through the center of the escutcheon is formed an aperture 18, preferably of the same diameter as the legs 11 and 12 and in the walls of the aperture 18 are formed diametrically arranged slots or recesses 19, which receive the keys 1% of thehandle when the parts are assembled, as shown for example in Figures 2 and G, The keys, which are made to substantially fill the slots 19, thus act to position the escutcheons with reference to the handles. so that both are in the same relative position.

After the parts are assembled, it will be noted that the key 14 project below the ends of the slots'19, (see for instance Figure 6). The projecting portions are then upset. by the use of a punch, so that they take the position shown in Figure 7, and thus secure the escutcheons rigidly in position on the handle.

lVhile one embodiment of this invention has been shown and described, applicant is not limited thereto, since it is obvious that other embodiments can be made without departing from the spirit and scope of this invention as set forth in the following claim.

Having thus set forth my invention what I claim as new and for which I desire protection by Letters Patent is:

A drawer pull consisting of a handle drawn from a wrought metal rod. keys projecting from the legs of said handle, escutcheon plates,.each plate having an aperture through the center thereof. and diametrically arranged recesses in the walls of said aperture. said parts being so formed and arranged that: when said plates are slipped over said legs. said keys project through said apertures beyond said recesses. whereby said keys can be ended over to secure said eseutcheons to said legs.

In testimony whereof I have affixed my signature.
