Getting Down to Brass Tacks

This post started out as a look at brass hardware and faucets but morphed into a little more. Like a magpie or Marie Antoinette, I can't resist anything gold or shiny. 

Bon weekend!

Love the look of old brass. Glad to see it has come back in favor. The stove with brass accents is amazing.

Although most disagree, I prefer brass unlacquered.

Coulda @4.27p - thanks for the heads up. I sort of figured it probably was the Chrysler building, but I've never seen it close up. I suppose I could have looked it up on Wiki.

This is a great example of how brass has come along way from ten years ago. It's back, but better!
