Finish Details - Unlacquered copper or brass is left in its raw, natural state. Oxidization is normal, and to be expected. This means that the canopy and cages, once given the final cleaning before packing, will begin to turn from bright shiny pink (copper) or gold (brass) to orangeish, and eventually to dark brown, and even green. This is the natural progression of the patina, and may take anywhere from a month to several years, depending on the environmental conditions surrounding it. The beautiful, natural patina of these metals is usually a desirable benefit to the material. If you choose to leave the fixture unlacquered as we suggest, then you will always have the option of either letting it naturally patina and age, or polishing it back to a bright "new" finish (steel wool or suitable metal polish is usually the simplest way to accomplish this). If you desire for the copper or brass components of your light to remain bright and shiny for as long as possible, select the lacquered finish. We will coat the metal with a lacquer spray that will protect it from oxidization, but there is an additional fee for this service. The lacquer will usually last for several years, but may eventually wear off.
Our Rustic patina is truly unique, and achieved by applying natural patina compounds. It is a volatile material - producing a varied finish within the fixture. A main color varying from dark brown to black appears overall, but within that main color will be deep hues of purple, green, blue, and copper highlights. The Rustic patina blends well with oil rubbed bronze, brass, copper, steel and other rustic finishes.
Glass - Our cage fixtures come standard without glass in the panels. No glass means a lighter weight fixture for simpler installation, and less cleaning required. Glass can be added however, and options are available upon request. Please contact us for more information on adding glass to your fixture.
