Our Polished Silver finish has a bright white undertone. To achieve a Polished Silver finish, brass is polished, copper plated, plated in silver, and then re polished. Silver reacts with chemicals with air and water, which enhances its natural ability to tarnish. Although Polished silver requires constant maintenance to preserve its original state, many appreciate the tarnished antique appearance. Please be aware of required maintenance before proceeding with this finish.
