    A Living finish is a non-lacquered, unprotected finish that "changes" over time. The finish changes are caused by oxidation from the air, as well as soaps, even natural oils that could be on your hands when you touch levers or door knobs.

    Brassware darkens due to atmospheric and environmental influences. Hardware made in brass will change over time and acquires added charm over the years. The patina that comes with use lends it a very special visual appeal.

    Like a new coin and an old coin, aging has occured, and the finishes are very different.

    There are many types of hinges to suit many applications.

    The most common hinge is the butt hinge used on interior and exterior doors of homes and offices.

    A hinge consists of two rectangular leaves with screw holes in the more common metric pattern, or the older imperial pattern. The leaves are joined by a pin. They can be fixed or loose pin.
