Design for drawer seen in plan, side profile, front elevation, and perspective. At right, perspective in blue and black color pencil reveals spherical finger grip, probably in polished aluminum or chrome, set into arced bracket, possibly also in metal or black Bakelite. At left, plan describes relative depth of pull components, with the arced bracket reaching around one half of the sphere. At center, side view indicates how pull would be screw-mounted to furniture. Below, front view describes symmetrical spherical outline with bracket ends appearing above and below. Margins ruled in graphite with views and dimensions in the same. Inscribed with Deskey No. 6232.
