Un-lacquered polished brass is a smooth reflective finish. The finish will dull over time to a soft gold-brown tone.

Exposure to moisture without polishing the finish will eventually lead to a Verdigris patina. Small solder joins may be visible on some lanterns, these grey with age.

Exposure to moistureSuitable for exterior and bathroom use without stove lacquer

For bathrooms we offer a stove lacquer; a clear protective coating baked on top of the finish.

For exterior use we recommend using the finish un-lacquered and maintaining with polishing as needed. Stove lacquer is not recommended for brass for exterior use.

Care

Un-lacquered: To maintain a bright finish we recommend polishing with ‘Brasso’ and a pure cotton cloth.

Stove Lacquered: Wipe clean with a damp pure cotton cloth and dab dry with a pure cotton cloth. Use no abrasive cleaners.

Samples

Handmade in brass, all designs can be finished in any of our metal finishes, or in any paint colour you wish to specify. Hand applied in our London workshop, subtle variations in tone are an inherent characteristic of our finishes, ensuring each piece is as unique as the interior scheme it is destined for.

Bespoke finishes and finish combinations are also available in a colour scheme of your choice. Work with our expert team to find the right finish for your project.

If you would like to view a finish in person but can not visit our showroom, please order a sample.
