This post started out as a look at brass hardware and faucets but morphed into a little more. Like a magpie or Marie Antoinette, I can’t resist anything gold or shiny. 
Bon weekend!

    brass is back -we see lots of people asking for it now at work.
    I LOVE that waterworks brass tub -always have. When I win the lottery *sigh*

    Love the look of old brass. Glad to see it has come back in favor. The stove with brass accents is amazing.

    Although most disagree, I prefer brass unlacquered.

    Coulda @4.27p – thanks for the heads up. I sort of figured it probably was the Chrysler building, but I’ve never seen it close up. I suppose I could have looked it up on Wiki.

    This is a great example of how brass has come along way from ten years ago. It’s back, but better!
