This little bin pull is perfect if you want a rustic look! The cast iron has a coating of surface rust on the lower areas that makes the swirling vines stand out nicely. There is a little chip on the edge (you can see it in the photo) that gives it a charming historical appeal.

This design was patented by Amos Shepard on Dec 23, 1873 and the term of the patent was for 7 years. It would have been manufactured during that period of time. With your purchase you will receive a copy of the patent via email. Unfortunately the patent date normally located on the back of the pulls has worn off this one.

Amos Shepard was an employee of H. D. Smith & Co. who was known for carriage hardware in the 1800s. Their factory was located at 24 West Street in Plantsville, Connecticut on the Eight Mile River, which provided power for the plant. Between 1900 and 1901 Amos Shepard and William Ward filed three patents for the company for tool handles. These patents formed the basis for Perfect Handle tools and by 1910 the company was making high-quality tools rather than fancy hardware.
