Polishing Brass Trays

I’m always on the lookout for unusual and exquisite pieces to decorate my homes.

Recently, my housecleaner Carlos took on the task of cleaning and polishing three antique brass trays that I purchased during my last trip to Florida. These trays were timeworn, dull and dark in color, but I knew with a little work they'd shine beautifully. Brass is a strong, corrosion-resistant alloy made from a combination of zinc and copper. With its bright golden color, brass has long been a favorite material for home furnishings and decorative accents. Cleaning brass takes time and a lot of elbow grease to complete, but now these pieces are shimmering once again.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
