Burnished Brass

The product is hand sateened to give a brushed satin finish, then a light antique patina is then applied to the brass before being placed into barrelling machines. This naturally aged appearance will further age and darken slightly over time, as it is a living finish.

We recommend the occasional use of a soft cloth and the use of a quality metal polish will help preserve the finish if highly polished. Our antique unlacquered finishes are designed to naturally oxidise overtime. We also recommend that cleaning should be kept to a minimum with occasional very light use of a soft cloth.

Chocolate Bronze Lacquered

The product is hand sateened to give a brushed satin finish and a bright copper plate is applied. A bronzing powder is evenly applied by hand to give a smooth consistent finish with a copper undertone through the bronze.

Finally, a highly durable clear satin lacquer is then applied and baked in our ovens to ensure the lacquer cures to offer lasting protection.

We recommend the occasional use of a soft cloth. Abrasive cleaning products should never be used as they will escalate the speed in which the lacquer breaks down.
