"Period correct...not by a long shot. In fact the purveyor of the hardware recoiled at the ideal of mixing these historical furniture periods."

Well, the pulls you've chosen rather neatly match the curves that link the berry inlays, so a good choice in my opinion.

I'm not aware of a 'rule' that says you can only match Georgian hardware with Georgian furniture styling, for instance.

I can't quite imagine a hardware dealer being so sensitive about the issue that a bit of mixing and matching of historical styles could bring him or her out in a rash or developing a case of the vapours - seems a bit precious to me, ha, ha. Slainte.
