All
brass blanks, charms & motifs are brass and manufactured from
original vintage patterns by predominantly hand crafted family owned
companies in Germany, Czech Republic and France dating back to the early
1900s. A few of these companies still survive today and manufacture
original vintage repro styles. This one is an original dating back pre
1950s. Note: vintage brass may have slight markings. This is not a
defect but indicative of its age and authenticity.

WHY WE LOVE WORKING WITH BRASS AND YOU WILL ALSO!


  • Brass is highly durable

  • Brass is polished easily

  • Brass is corrosion resistant

  • Brass is green: a highly machinable with less scrap, less rework and less
    energy than other materials.

  • Brass is lead and nickel free

  • Brass has a soft muted honey colouring, which makes it the most complimentary of all metal finishes.


CARE

Brass will naturally darken (called a patina) as it ages.

You may like the antique it creates however if you want to bring the piece back to a shiny brass simply:


Boil 1 cup of water, set aside until warm then add a tblsp vinegar and
drop of washing up detergent. Combine all ingredients in a jar &
gently shake for 30 seconds. Dry on a paper towel.
It's that easy!
