Polished Silver is polished and buffed by hand and then given a jeweler's buff. The result is a mirror-like finish that is the standard by which others are measured in the industry. Satin Pewter is a soft, smooth, matte finish while the Brushed Stainless is polished with a coarse grit to give texture and dimension.
Iron and Ashen Iron are both black nickel plates highlighted to give the effect of natural iron. The Iron finish is slightly more matted because it uses a flat lacquer. Charcoal is a very dark oxidized brass that is nearly black. It is matted but does not lose its metallic feel or appearance.
Polished Brass is polished and buffed by hand and then given a jeweler's buff to yield a mirror-like finish. French Brass is brass covered with a black nickel plate, which is then removed so that it only remains in crevices and filigrees. The result is a product that is lightly antiqued brass with dark accents. Blanched Brass is a slightly satined brass that is covered with a white substrate, some of which is removed, resulting in a lightly bleached finish that highlights filigrees in the component.
All of our bronzes are natural oxidations that emanate a warm metallic glow. Mahogany Bronze is the deepest of these finishes and, in certain reflections, will reflect hints of purple and red. Siena Bronze is an oxidation over a copper base that is highlighted to pull out the copper tones. Harvest Bronze is a lightly oxidized brass that is lightly satined, as well as lightly matted, and is hand-rubbed to retain a metallic glow. Bronzed Gold Leaf is created by covering brass with gold leaf that is then oxidized. Part of the leaf is removed during the drying process to render a textured finish that has brass, gold and bronze tones.
Aged Bronze is achieved by oxidizing a brass substrate to accelerate the aging process and creates an antiqued finish that would take decades to create naturally.
Raw Copper is a copper base that has been washed in an acid to initiate the natural oxidation process. Because it is not lacquered this finish will mature with age and emanate soft patina and rust tones
