A Guide to From the Anvil Product Finishes

Period finishes

There’s a variety of different finishes from the manufacturer ‘From the Anvil’ and it would be useful to our customer’s, now that we stock some of them, if we gave you a guide to which ones are best. We hope you find it useful. We love to help our customers make educated choices about the wide selection of top-of-the-range manufacturer products we stock. 

External Beeswax Finish

This can be used both inside and outside the home. It’s anti-corrosive and has a delicious matt affect with an excellent range of colours. You can use a maintenance wax to keep this finish in tip top condition. 

Polished Nickel Finish

Again for indoor and outdoor use this is a nickel-plated finish that has a really gorgeous polished finish. It comes unlacquered with warm tones, you can wipe with an oiled cloth occasionally to keep it in good condition.

Satin Chrome Finish

This gives a matt finish and comes with a solid steel or brass base metal with a chrome plate on the surface. Like the nickel finish, an oiled cloth is ideal to keep it stain free. This is great for both external and internal use.

Polished Chrome Finish

This reflects beautifully, it has brass and steel at its base with a chrome finish on the surface which has been finished to a high shine. It can be wiped with an oiled cloth and if you’re looking for something really special this is it. 

Polished Bronze Finish

This is made from unlacquered bronze with a high degree of copper. It has been aged and then polished again and is dark with a highly polished surface. It will become darker with age, but if you choose to polish it regularly it will keep its sheen. It’s good for external or internal use. 

Aged Bronze Finish

This is matt and very rich and has been aged. It also comes with a high degree of copper. It has been darkened and will darken more over time but will also reveal delicious copper undertones. By hand polishing you will lighten the finish quicker. Good for both internal and external use.

Aged Brass Finish

This is a solid brass finished that is unlacquered and has been aged. It has undergone an accelerated aging process after being polished again. You can leave this to age as it will darken over time but if you want it to be more sheen-like you can polish with something like Brasso.

Polished Brass Finish

Blacksmith finishes
