→brass facts Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, used and prized since ancient times for its beauty, resilience and durability. Color variations are the result of slightly different proportions of copper and zinc. Brass can be cast, forged, spun, wrought or die-cut. It is used in our homes for fine hardware, lighting fixtures, fireplace equipment, candle holders and many other practical and decorative accessories. Brass can be finished in many different ways. These include a highly polished (mirror) finish; a satin or brushed finish; a soft (hand rubbed) finish; plus antique, bronze and verdigris finishes.
→solid brass vs brass plated A piece is solid brass if the material is pure brass - whether it's the hollow tube of a chandelier arm, a sheet of brass wrapped around a steel post as in many antique beds, or a two pound candlestick. Solid brass can always be polished to its original beauty, although an old lacquer may need to be removed first. Brass plated items are usually made of steel or white metal (zinc) to which molecules of brass are electroplated. A lacquer is usually applied to protect the plating. Brass plating is exceedingly thin and will deteriorate over a period of time. Brass plated pieces can sometimes be polished successfully (once the lacquer is carefully removed), but if the plating is deteriorated the piece will probably need to be replated.
