Located at the terminal of a handle, this molded botanical element is a stylized leaf, that curves or “swoops” off to one side of the handle. In some cases the bottom handle terminus swoops to one side while the upper handle terminus swoops to the other side.
The genre for this stylistic element depends on a combination of decorative technique, color, and element.
