Our objects are machined in solid brass of very good quality. The raw brass is slightly softened and polished mechanically. We offer many finishes, some will develop their own character over time, such as Natural, Polished, Nickel. Others will be more fixed like some veneers. Lacquers or varnishes will be more fragile.
All our finishes are carried out in family-sized workshops in France, we assemble and package the objects in our workshop in Bordeaux.

Shapes

We have imagined a modular concept of fine locksmithing, available in a collection combining shapes, colors and material finishes. Three solid brass pieces are machined, adjusted and assembled to perfection. Four handle shapes are available: bold pill, light pill, bold drop, light drop. Three designs of buttons decorate the handles: degree, knob, ball. You can use the handle alone or combine it with a decorative plate: oval collection, circé, cloud, parisette, moon. Added to this are cupboard knobs that can be combined with decorative plates.

Finishes

Our objects are machined in solid brass of very good quality. The raw brass is slightly softened and polished mechanically. We offer many finishes, some will develop their own character over time, such as natural, polished, nickel. Others will be more fixed like some veneers. Lacquers or varnishes will be more fragile.

natural brass

Description

The raw brass is slightly softened and polished mechanically. Deliberately left NATURAL, it will take on a patina over time and with use. Before delivery we apply a wax protection to the object in order to slow down the patina.

What happens over time

It is a LIVING MATERIAL.
With this finish, our objects will take on a patina over time and with use.
The straw yellow color of brass will turn golden yellow then slowly brown to approach a bronze hue.
The brass will remain golden yellow on the handled parts, the patina will develop more quickly on the parts not touched by hand. The pieces will then brown nicely to develop their own character.

Outdoors, brass will patinate faster and differently depending on the climate and will require more regular maintenance if desired.

Natural brass may appear shiny on certain pieces (BALL shape for example) but its appearance quickly becomes matt, the brass darkens and browns nicely to develop its own character.

Maintenance
>> If you prefer the piece to develop its own character, simply clean with a soft, lint-free cloth, possibly use a damp, soapy sponge and then wipe well.

>> If you wish to restore the initial finish, the object should ideally be dismantled, then use a good quality brass cream, rinse with lukewarm water, wipe well with a soft cloth, and possibly then apply a protective wax for brass.
(following the recommendations of the product manufacturer)


Attention :
the plates are fixed with very small screws (the screws could be damaged during dismantling and the openings in the door could become larger, they would then no longer allow the screws to play their role) this dismantling must therefore be carried out with precaution.


If the objects are not dismantled: We recommend that you protect your door well, if you want to use a cleaning cream and wax. (especially if the door is raw wood, without paint or varnish)

Mirror polished

Description

What happens over time

With this finish, our objects will take on a patina over time and with use.
The straw yellow color of brass will turn golden yellow then slowly brown to approach a bronze hue.
The brass will remain golden yellow on the handled parts, the patina will develop more quickly on the parts not touched by the hand. The pieces will then brown nicely to develop their own character.
Outside, the brass will patinate more quickly and differently depending on the climate and will require more regular maintenance if desired.

Maintenance

>> If you prefer the piece to develop its own character, simply clean with a very soft, lint-free cloth, possibly use a damp, soapy sponge and then wipe well. ATTENTION the very fine polishing can be scratched easily.

>> If you wish to restore the initial finish, the object should ideally be dismantled, then use a good quality brass cream, rinse with lukewarm water, wipe well with a soft cloth, and possibly then apply a protective wax for brass.
