What Is Laquering And How Long Does It Last?

Lacquering is a clear coating which is applied after an item has been refinished. The purpose of it is to preserve the finish and prevent tarnishing which occurs on brass, silver, and copper finishes. It has pros and cons and we leave it to the customer to decide which is best. We recommend it for lighting, brass hardware, and many items which are strictly decorative. You should have many years of freedom from polishing and it is removeable when necessary. We do not recommend it for any items which will contain food, water, or live plants. It is also impractical for many silver items. This is a case by case decision which we will be glad to discuss with you. It should be noted, however, that unlike our other services, we will not warranty lacquering.
