Brass is back. Whether you are seeking wholly authentic, original designs or a contemporary look, our Ambra, Astonian, and Tradition polished brass collections, and our Acme and Astonian Index scuffed brass collections have the answers.
Brass taps are increasingly popular in the bathroom and there are a variety of finishes to choose from. We offer scuffed brass, which has a matte finish, or polished brass. All products are of unlacquered, natural brass which can be left to develop a warm patina, or polished to maintain an ‘as new’ look.
To help you select the right finish for your scheme here is what you need to know.
Patina is a natural tarnish that forms on the surface of brass and other metals. If you prefer to maintain the shine on your new brass taps, they will need to be polished. However, where we used to do everything to keep our taps shiny, there is now an increasing demand for taps with a characterful surface patina - this will happen naturally resulting in an aged/antique finish.
Please note – we do not offer lacquered brass products as the coating is likely to deteriorate over time rendering the fittings unsightly.
Polished brass or scuffed brass – the choice is yours.
