Antique Brass & Related Metals

  • 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. Please join us this coming Sunday evening, February 25, 2018 for this week's program. We'll be on at the usual time: 5PM PST, 6PM MST, 7PM CST, 8PM EST. Gary
