"The white on the boy's horn looks like ceramic to me. What is it?  Neither brass nor bronze emits white stuff, but ceramics do. Could it be bronze paint over ceramic? The boy appears to be blowing a hunting horn for dogs rather than…"

"Oh Karen, I'm sorry I did not see this comment when I posted. Very odd, I'm thinking the NING is wonky today. Anyways, you believe that the glass is strongly "adhered" for lack of a better word to the brass. If that is the case,…"

"Hello All, wow, so appreciate all of the discussion! I have just tried to unscrew the brass base from the glass knob, on several of them, and cannot, for the life of me, get them apart.  They must be adhered together somehow.  I have tried…"

"Overmyer's patent was an improvement over an earlier design. The original GLASS DRAWER PULLS screwed directly into the wood.  Overmyer introduced the brass retainer which simplified installation and made it stronger. The older style were…"
