Polished Brass Unlacquered
Corston Unlacquered Brass is left un-coated and un-protected. This will allow the brass to develop and age on its own, gradually darkening in colour. If you wish to retain a bright, polished effect we recommend the products are regularly cleaned with brass polish and a soft cloth.
Corston Antique Brass is designed to look as though it has been an original part of the home for many years. This lived-in look is achieved by hand at our Wiltshire headquarters. Each piece is individually hand finished, but left unlacquered to continue to age over time. Made on a per order basis, each piece will vary slightly in character but will retain a rich antique look and feel. The finish will continue to age and darken over time. If polished with brasso or metal polish, the natural bright brass colour will return and start the aging process again. This develops a lovely patina over time.
Rich & chocolatey, the Corston bronze finish, looks great in both contemporary and traditional homes. The bronze finish is achieved with a chemical process that is applied to solid brass by hand. Each piece will vary slightly in character with subtle marks within it. After a very long period of use the natural brass colour can work through to subtlety revealing the warmth of the brass below. To clean your bronze hardware We recommend you simply wipe it over with a clean, lint free, soft cloth to remove any residual build-up of dust and dirt on the product.
Corston, polished nickel is a clean and classic finish that makes it a quality choice in both traditional and modern properties. Nickel has a warmer yellow colour, whereas chrome is cooler and blue in colour. It is not lacquered as the Nickel plating is the protective layer. Our bright nickel finish is maintained by regularly wiping it over with a clean, lint free, soft cloth to remove any residual build-up of dust and dirt on the product.
