historic finishes introduction

bower barf historic finishThis hardware is for a historic building in Chicago we are restoring all the hardware on. The finish is Bower-Barf — we are in the process, developing a historic finishes resource to assist homeowners, designers and architects with determination and the historical process of plating and finishing.

Much of these finishes cannot be done today because of environmental regulations. However, new technologies and processes allow us to achieve the same final finish with a more advanced and cleaner process. Unfortunately most of the time the labor involved with even the new process is just the same if not more intense.
