Aged Brass Maintenance

 A SIMPLE GUIDE TO CARING FOR YOUR AGED BRASS PRODUCTS

Curved hooded drawer pull made from solid brass with an aged finish on grey drawer

Hand applied over solid, unlacquered brass, our Aged Brass finish gives pieces a warm, golden colour which is enhanced with a dark ageing.
This matte finish has a softly aged appearance, and is one of our ‘living finishes’, meaning the appearance of the finish will continue to develop over time. With use, the finish will gently wear through on contact areas to reveal the unlacquered brass beneath, which in turn will oxidise and tarnish beautifully.

Aged Brass pieces receive a protective wax coating as the final step in manufacturing, and to maintain your Aged Brass pieces all you need to do is apply a beeswax polish from time to time.

Don’t use any cleaning agents or polishes on Aged Brass as this can remove the finish. If needed, wipe gently with a damp cloth to clean.

As the matching screws are made from solid brass (a reasonably soft metal), we recommend drilling a pilot hole first so that minimal pressure is put on the screws themselves.
