Unlacquered brass door knobs

13 years ago

I had been planning on using oil rubbed bronze hardware but over the last month or so I have had this nagging fear that I am buying into a trend . . . and am a bit concerned that I may make the wrong decision. We are building sort of a new old house which is decidedly untrendy so I would like the hardware to be the same.

I have been thinking about using unlacquered brass but have been nervous about it, particularly how long it takes to lose the shiny bright brass look. I love the patina of old brass hardware but don't want to wait 30 or 50 years for it to get there!

Any one used this in a new build? How long did it take to age? Any thoughts?
