Pruskin Hardware is available in three beautiful bronze alloys: silicon bronze, white bronze and manganese bronze. 

The standard patinas available for silicon bronze are black, brown (also available in manganese bronze) and rubbed black. Other finishes are custom and (possibly)available upon request.

Raw manganese bronze is a unique finish. It is manganese bronze directly from the ceramic shell. Each item is slightly different.

Pruskin hardware is coated with Renaissance wax. It is a living finish, and will change over time.

Care: A mild soap and dry and re-wax very occasionally. If polish finish becomes dull, use MAAS Metal Polish, and then re-wax.
