Material

Only premium grade brass is used. Brass does not rust or corrode which is why it offers longevity. Plating of nickel, chrome and other applied finishes is always over the solid brass base. Bronze can also be used. Any components are also of the highest quality.

Castings

Products are cast in the UK from premium grade brass. Attention to detail is crucial during this process, to ensure the detail on the pattern is transferred to the mould and subsequently carried through to the final cast product. Traditional castings offer excellent detail to products and allows for the use of popular and well regarded time old patterns e.g. Lions head door knobs and the Art Deco range

Polishing 

Products are always meticulously cleaned by hand, with special attention paid to the extremely detailed parts, giving a clean and smooth appearance. The hand polishing team consists of skilled and trained polishers, some of whom have been within the trade for nearly 50 years. All products are polished by hand. The product is receiving the finest level of attention at this important stage of the process.

Finishing
