Polished Brass

Our polished brass finish is a smooth, just shy of mirror-grade, light reflecting surface. We do not lacquer brass unless it is specifically requested, as the finish will age naturally to a mellower gold brown patina over the years. CARE: Dust with a dry cotton cloth. To maintain the bright gold color, we recommend a non-paste polish such as “Nevr-Dull”.

Polished Bronze

Our polished bronze finish is a smooth, just shy of mirror-grade, light reflecting surface. We do not lacquer bronze unless it is specifically requested, as the finish will age naturally to a mellower gold brown patina over the years. CARE: Dust with a dry cotton cloth. To maintain a brighter color, we recommend a non-paste polish such as “Nevr-Dull”.

Burnished Brass

This mellow finish is achieved by hand rubbing our polished brass, lending a warm and softened tone to the metal. This finish will very slowly patinate over time to a golden brown hue. We seal this finish with clear wax. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners.

Light Antique Brass

This finish is obtained by polishing, oxidizing, and rubbing the brass by hand to create a subtle aged look. It is traditionally finished with wax, letting the patina develop organically over time. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners.

Medium Antique Brass

This finish is obtained by polishing, oxidizing, and rubbing the brass by hand to create an aged look. It is traditionally finished with wax, letting the patina develop organically over time. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners.

Dark Antique Brass

This finish is obtained by polishing, oxidizing, and rubbing the brass by hand to create a dark aged look. It is traditionally finished with wax, letting the patina develop organically over time. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners.

Oil Rubbed Bronze

Starting with a matte surface the patina is applied and allowed to darken further to a deep, warm brown black and then rubbed by hand to bring up the natural highlights of the metal. It is traditionally finished with wax, letting the patina develop organically over time. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners.

Dark Waxed Bronze

Starting with a matte surface the patina is applied and allowed to darken further to a deep, warm brown black. It is traditionally finished with wax, letting the patina develop organically over time. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners. Maintain with periodic dusting. This finish will develop a verdigris look if exposed to a damp environment.

Polished Nickel

This bright and resilient finish is resistant to harsher conditions and humidity. A great finish for bathrooms and kitchens, it retains its luster without lacquer in damp environments. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners.

Burnished Nickel

This subtle finish is achieved by hand rubbing our polished nickel, softening its brightness while leaving some shine to the surface. An excellent alternative to Silver Plate for vulnerable areas like bathrooms. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners.

Verdigris

Literally "Green of Greece" Remains verdigris is a dark patina finish that recalls the green oxidation on weathered brass, bronze, and copper. The metal is first blackened and then has salts applied to bring out the mottled green tones. Left outside this oxidation will slowly and beautifully progress. CARE: Wipe if necessary with damp cloth. Use no strong cleaners or abrasives.

Satin Nickel

The subtle and beautiful brushed lines of satin nickel create a low-lustre alternative to polished nickel. This finish is often used to imitate steel. Satin nickel needs no lacquer. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners.

Light Pewter

This patina is hand worked into a base surface of matte nickel to darken the low points and brighten the high points for a rich, silver gray aged look. It is traditionally finished with wax. The luster is easily maintained without lacquer. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners.

Dark Pewter

This patina is hand worked into a base surface of matte nickel to darken the surface to a deep, aged dark pewter and then rubbed by hand to bring up the natural silver highlights of the metal. It is traditionally finished with wax. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners.

German Silver

This patina is hand worked into a base surface of softly polished nickel to accentuate the details and approximate the look of antique silver. It is traditionally left plain, and the luster is easily maintained without lacquer. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners.

Silverplate

Our version of this classic finish is slightly tarnished and then repolished to bring out the lushness of silver. To slow down natural oxidation, silver plated fixtures are lacquered unless specified otherwise. CARE: Maintain with periodic feather dusting. Do not polish lacquered finishes or get them wet.

Gold

We lay a thick layer of 24k lemony gold onto a semi-polished base and finish it by selectively burnishing the high points. CARE: Clean with soft cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners. Maintain with periodic dusting.
