One of the most interesting finishes that Forbes and Lomax does is aged brass; here is a look at some of the best aged brass switches and sockets made by Forbes & Lomax.

You can also see some of the other finishes that this designer switches and sockets manufacturer does, such as the the dolly switches (in different finishes), invisible switches, painted sockets, Verdigris range, Combination range, and the European sockets.

What is the Forbes and Lomax Aged Brass Finish?

Aged brass seems to have a different look or meaning for many out there, but the aged brass from Forbes and Lomax is particular.

This finish has been designed in such a way that it looks beautifully antiqued upon installation and has been left unlacquered to patina even more over time. In other words, when you buy it, the finish is quite shiny and antique, but then, as time goes by, there's a patina shows up.

If you want to keep the unlacquered brass finish, the shiny finish, you can just polish it to bring back some sunshine.

The real beauty of the aged brass finish from Forbes and Lomax lies in the mellow aged look of the brass. It looks as if it has been an original part of the interior for many years.

The toggles, dimmer knobs, and push buttons are supplied polished but unlacquered.

This provides a subtle accent to the more muted finish of the plate. In other words, the aged brass range from Forbes and Lomax will be great for those who want to show a more mellow aged look of the brass, and who don't mind to polish it from time to time.

We have some of these items in our lighting showroom in Archway, North London, and they all look different from one another, for they mellow differently.
