_ This invention pertains to handles adapted for
use on furniture, such as door handles, drawer
pulls and. 'the'like. Handles constructed in ac
cordance with our invention may be made in
various sizes and designs in conformity with the

but recedes rapidly from the ?anges 12 near the
ends of .the base, thereby providing a ?at portion

to which the fastening screws or bolts I8 extend
use to which they are to be put. For illustra
tive purposes merely, we have here shown a
handle adapted for use upon a kitchen cabinet.
Among the purposes of our invention is the

as satisfactorily serving its utilitarian purposes.
To facilitate an understanding of my inven
tion, I have shown on the accompanying draw
whereby the ?llet and body are interlocked to
hold the ?llet in place. While the ?llet may be
solid, it is illustrated in the drawing as being hol

The ?llet 15, which is of generally arcuate
shape, is formed of suitable plastic material,

We claim:
1. A handle, comprising a channel-shaped out
wardly bowed metal body having ?at co-planar
interlocked to mount the ?llet on the body, the
channel of the body being of increased depth to
ward the ends of the body to provide a space be
tween the ?llet and the base of the channel at
the ends thereof for the accommodation of fas
tening means whereby the handle is mounted.
3. A furniture handle, comprising a body mem

2. A handle, comprising a channel-shaped
metal body provided with ?anges extending lon
