I’ve done shows, which are in the Video Archives, on various antique metals, and one on polishing brass, however I haven’t done one devoted to antique brass & the other copper alloys. So, that’s the subject of this week’s program: Antique Brass & Related Metals. For exhibits I’ve selected a few great pieces from the BRASS Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver: 3 Renaissance Revival French clocks, candlesticks, a Georgian trivet, and many others. For comparison I’ve taken a bronze statue that’s lost its original patina, and I discuss spelter, pot metal, and the various qualities of brass.
