Polished Brass Gallery vs Aged Brass – It’s Your Choice

  As you can see from our range, many of our original Art Deco Lights have beautiful brass galleries which are either polished brass or aged-darkened brass.   Which looks best?  Well this is just a matter of personal choice.  Some people just love the warm glow of polished brass while others much prefer the darker aged patina.  It can make quite a big difference to the appearance of the light when installed and of course, you may also be looking to match other lights or accessories in a room.…
