Weeden's patent "relates to an improvement in that class of drawer-pulls termed 'shell-pulls,' from their resemblance to a shell in shape, and secured to the front of the drawer, so as to leave a cavity in the rear of the front of the pull, up into which the fingers may be inserted in opening the drawer." In order to overcome the heaviness of other pulls, Weeden's patent is made from "sheet-metal, and ornamented by perforating or cutting into the desired shape in the process of stamping..." (Patent Number 183,476)
