Polished Brass Door Handles
At Broughtons we love unlacquered brass because it oxidises causing it to mellow and over time it ends up having a soft brown patina. If you can't wait for that to happen we can "hand age" any unlacquered brass product to give it an instant aged look. Alternatively if you wish to preserve the polished finish, you need to polish with a metal polish fairly regularly.
Lacquered Polished Brass retains the bright polished appearance for a period and should not be polished with abrasive polishes/cleaners as this will break down the lacquer. Like paint and varnish, with use and over time the lacquer will break down causing the items to look scruffy and require attention. Clean with a soft damp cloth followed by an application of a quality wax polish.
