Finishes

We take great pride in being able to offer a variety of finishes on our Hardware which allows you to find the perfect finish to give you that personal feel. All of our products are made from solid brass which enables us to produce the finest selection of plated and patinated finishes.

Our finishes are applied in our Birmingham factory, with a number of these finishes being applied by hand by our expert polishers. As a result the can be a small natural variation from the batch to batch that we strive to keep to a minimum.
