Item details

The Grip medium brass drawer pull features a hand gripping a baton - or a barbell - and is one of my most popular cabinet hardware pieces.

You can use it for its intended purpose but it can also be used for steampunk assemblages, sculptures and mixed media art dolls. I've even had a customer purchase these to convert into stoppers on big decorative bottles.

Unfortunately, only one hand – the left – is available in this design.

Made in Indonesia, it's about 55mm across the baton and comes complete with a short slotted metal screw that's 20mm in length and 5mm in diameter at the thread.

This listing is for one piece only. I also have limited stock of this item in a slightly smaller size that is approx 44mm across the length of the baton, and the larger size that is about 66mm across the baton.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment if it's possible and convenient for you.

You can get better value for money on the shipping cost by adding other items.

Please check my cabinet hardware section for other drawer pulls -

Size: Approx 28mm (L) from the knuckles to the base of the wrist and 55mm (W) – the length of the baton.
Thickness: Approx 14mm across the thickest part of the fist.
Weight: Approx 42 grams
Material: Brass, metal screw
Shipping: In combination with packaging, this item is likely to go into a higher weight bracket than many of my pieces and is therefore more expensive to ship. I ship from Bali by Pos Indonesia registered mail with a tracking number, and you will almost certainly need to sign for your package upon delivery. I usually ship more quickly than the 3-5 days mentioned in my shipping profile, and refund on shipping overpayments in excess of $1.

Many a talented hand resides on the Island of the Gods, Bali. It's said that all Balinese are artists and this seems to be true, whether they be painters, sculptors of stone or wood, carvers of bone, shell or horn, silversmiths, makers of the eleborate costumes worn in performance theatre and dance, crafters of the intricately patterned shadow puppets known as wayang kulit, the dalangs who control them, carvers of the tiny picture stories inscribed in lontar palm leaf books, or the makers of batik, ikat and songket textiles.

Or, more simply, the makers of the intricately woven and elaborately constructed offerings to the gods that are made in every quarter of the island pretty much every hour of every day. For the Balinese have woven art into the very fabric of their religion and their daily lives.

Mexican artist and art historian Miguel Covarrubias, who first visited the island on his honeymoon in 1930, described Balinese art as "a highly developed, although informal Baroque folk art that combines the peasant liveliness with the refinement of classicism of Hinduistic Java, but free of the conservative prejudice and with a new vitality fired by the exuberance of the demonic spirit of the tropical primitive".

Covorrubias wrote a fabulous book, Island of Bali, published in 1937 and you can get it on Amazon if you'd like to learn about Balinese art history, culture and beliefs.

The word for hand in Bahasa Indonesia is 'tangan'.

In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
