Polished finish VS Hammered finish
For a more polished look, you can opt for polished -brass finish. Note that the mailboxes in polished brass are made using the old-fashioned way by the most talented brass artisans.
Given such kind of crafting, noticing some slight imperfection is a normal aspect of the fabrication process and not to be considered as a defect.
This is what gives it the unique character. Its polished brass finish may show more imperfections compared to hammered finishes.
- Antique hammered
The hammered finish will give you the rustic look you want. The rustic-antique hammered finish is carefully hand- scuffed, hammered, and buffed.
The finish may exhibit some scuff or sanding marks. These are normal and just a part of its character- it’s not a defect.
Every mailbox is made by hand and the finish (antique) is hand-applied also. No two mailboxes can be same. Some of them are lighter while others are darker in color.
The variations for color are between the different mailboxes in antique brass. Each mailbox color would vary depending on lighting conditions.
Note also that the brass mailboxes (in black bottom, polished, or antique brass) have a lacquer finish that protects them. But for the copper mailboxes, they do not have a lacquer finish and natural patina may form through time.
In order to preserve their polished finishes, the use of a clear and no buff car is recommended. Clean the mailbox first using a soft cloth and warm soapy water, then rinse and dry. Then apply the wax.
Reminder: Polished brass finish is not recommended in locations with corrosive salt-air
