Frequently Asked Questions

Our hardware is coloured by a fuming technique and is not lacquered. This technique provides a unique and beautiful finish that is both durable and long lasting. If you have any questions about our hardware or finishes, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We cast our hardware in brass, bronze and white bronze. Each of these metals has its own unique properties and appearances. If you have any questions about our casting process or the materials we use, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Brass is a metal alloy made up of copper and zinc. It is commonly used in the manufacture of hardware such as handles and hinges, due to its strength, durability and resistance to corrosion. Brass is also valued for its attractive appearance, which can range from a bright, shiny finish to a more subdued antique look.

I have a very old wood armoire . When I bought it over 20 years ago, it had mismatched handles. I looked in vain to find matching ones. Even with the internet I had no luck. Last month I stumbled across the site for Optimum Brasses in the UK . I could hardly believe my luck when I saw the identical handles. I contacted them and Helen was most helpful, sending these handles to Canada from UK . I just installed the handles yesterday and they fit perfectly ! Thanks so much to all the folks at Optimum Brasses.

Outstanding service. A brass fitting fitting on our 20yr old sideboard went missing that was originally supplied by Optimum Brasses Ltd and the fitting is still being made today. Optimum Brasses sent the fitting plus spares the very next day, I cannot recommend this company highly enough and I wish them many, many more years of success and good fortune. Thank you so much.10/10

As a previous employee of Optimum Brasses, I have nothing but good things to say about this company. A lovely business to work for, a great team of hardworking individuals that really take pride in their work. The quality of the brassware is second to none.

I was recommended Optimum Brasses by Gilboy's Furniture Restorers of Staverton. I had bought a 'secessionist'-style dressing table, which was missing one original mirror pivot. I supplied the existing one to OB, and they copied it masterfully (see photo)
