The Unlacquered Brass Range from Forbes and Lomax

  • The Unlacquered Brass range is designed a classical design as it mellows with age if left unpolished to match older brass fittings in the home. 
  • This is particularly suitable to period buildings where a bright brass look would be less desirable. Alternatively, the plates can easily be polished to give a shiny look should this be required.
  • The depth of the tarnished affect depends on the usage of the product in the home. 
  • Although traditional in appearance, the variety of unlacquered brass products we have will meet all the demands of modern living.
