antique nickel door knocker finish


Sometimes called "Pewter" the surface of the casting's natural brass gold tone is machine buffed smooth and hand polished. An abrasive media is used to dull the surface and create a horizontal grain to the surface. The casting is then engraved. Following the engraving the casting is nickel plated to create the silver finish over the satin brass. The casting is then placed in an oxidizer bath to turn the surface almost black. The black oxidation is polished leaving a darkened satin finish with darkened highlights.

As a usual rule satin nickel does not create adequate contrast for engraving to be seen well. This is not true with ours because we engrave before we plate. The actual engraving creates bright lines on the satin surface that creates excellent contrast. This is duplicated through the plating creating an easy to read personalization. As an added benefit the oxidation process actually darkens the engraving creating even more contrast. Nickel electroplating is used on our antique nickel finish.
