But the good people at Forbes and Lomax recently paid a visit to the museum at Mycenae, where they saw those bronze switches and sockets in a verdigris finish, which look so cool both in contemporary and traditional interiors.
As a result, the verdigris finish is coming to the Forbes & Lomax switches and sockets!
What is Verdigris?What does "verdigris" mean? Google helps us in this sense saying, "Verdigris is a bright bluish-green encrustation or patina formed on copper or brass by atmospheric oxidation, consisting of basic copper carbonate. Synonym with Patina." Via Wikipedia we find out even more that,
Verdigris is the common name for a green pigment obtained through the application of acetic acid to copper plates or the natural patina formed when copper, brass or bronze is weathered and exposed to air or seawater over a period of time. It is usually a basic copper carbonate, but near the sea will be a basic copper chloride. If acetic acid is present at the time of weathering, it may consist of copper acetate.
Forbes and Lomax Verdigris RangeThe Verdigris range has a rich aged bronze patina. The plates in Verdigris from Forbes and Lomax are hand finished to produce a slightly variable effect, making each plate unique. You can't really find two plates that look the same in a Verdigris finish - this adds to the distinctive look!
Like all the other Forbes & Lomax products, these plates are available at Sparks Electrical in a large variety of switch and sockets combinations. We are currently working on this range to add it to our website, and you will be delighted to have them in your homes in a 3-4 working days from the date of the order.
