Oil Rubbed Bronze Hardware
Making beautiful glass is one thing but just as important is the finish of the metal work. Our brass work is unique to us and our design. It is made by two companies both based in the UK, Cornwall and Birmingham. Liam use to make his own metal work but as he has become busier we now have this made for us. When all put together and polished our glass sits beautifully on a gleaming brass rose. However, over half of our work then needs to have additional work for additional finishes such as nickel, chrome, silver, satin. There are now many different finishes available, all have their specific look and requirements for our customers.
Recently we have seen an increase in the demand for oil rubbed bronze particularly from our customers in America for kitchen, bathroom and cabinet hardware. The effect is dramatic and for furniture and doors on dark wood the finish is perfect. This is where the brass is considerably darkened, (we can match to specific finishes) and then buffed with beeswax to give it a rich, elegant yet rustic look.
We love offering a variety of finishes, we want our products to look fabulous in your homes no matter what your look us. If it`s interesting I will blog about it! www.merlinglass.co.uk
