Finish Recommendations & Maintenance
Where polished or brushed brass is exposed to heavy use, such as in the case of exterior hardware or plumbing fittings, it is strongly suggested that the surface not be lacquered but that it be maintained from the beginning with the regular use of a good commercial brass polish. Brass, bronze and silver finishes are not recommended for bathroom fittings and accessories, due to the constant polishing that is required for proper maintenance. We suggest gold, pewter, or nickel for their beauty and utility.
All non-brass finishes are plated over solid brass. While we believe the quality of our plating to be superior, no plated finish can be guaranteed. Its durability is in direct relationship to the quality of maintenance. All harsh chemicals and abrasives must be avoided. Cleaning should be done with mild soap and water and the surface should be buffed dry with a soft cloth. An occasional polishing with furniture oil or wax is helpful.
Standard items are stocked in polished brass and lacquer except where indicated. Please note that basin, tub and shower sets are not lacquered.
