VERDIGRIS PATINA:
We specialize in our one of a kind Hand Aged Verdigris Patina.
This patina is applied to Raw Brass using multiple layers of different oxidizing agents,
and can take days to a week to complete the process. We then wax the items , then polish them out to a beautiful high gloss sheen, this accents all the high areas.
Part of the beauty of this finish is having some of the brass show through.
The verdigris patina gives the items that old world look and feel.
They are not however made to get wet.

BRASS STAMPINGS & FINDINGS:
Our Brass stampings are all manufactured here in the USA. They are produced using Antique tooling . They are really high quality treasures.
Both lead and nickle free. The finish is usually liken to a gold color . Raw brass will tarnish over time. Raw brass can also look different each time you buy it, brass is not a pure metal .

PLATED PATINAS:
Our raw brass is plated here on the East Coast.
The Silver Ox Plate does have some Sterling in it.
The plated items are done in an oxidized patina then sealed.

CASTINGS:
We have wonderful pewter casting in stock made right here in the USA.
We also carry castings imported from overseas, you will find that information in the descriptions

VINTAGE TREASURES:
These are usually limited to what I can find in all the great places I have to go to here in New York.
