Optimum Brasses Ltd.
authentic lost-wax castings
Since 1981 we have supplied thousands of faithful replicas of antique brass furniture fittings by using the lost-wax process, the right brass and careful individual finishing and patination.
Not the usual reproduction hardware, our brass castings are taken straight from genuine examples of William and Mary, Queen Anne, Georgian, Chippendale, Hepplewhite, Sheraton, Regency, Victorian, Arts and Crafts Movement and Edwardian origin.
We can make plate handles or pulls, key escutcheons, knobs, pear-drops and axe-drops, hinges, feet and castors, table clips, bolts and catches, finials and spandrels for clocks, mounts, mouldings and paterae, bolt covers, keys and dresser hooks, upholstery pins, parts for pianos and many architectural items.
Lost-wax castings have revolutionised furniture restoration. We are proud to have satisfied our customers' needs with more than 7000 different items.
Our Main Catalogue shows almost 600 items from across our range that we keep in stock for immediate despatch. To view the catalogue in PDF format or to place an order click here.
Some customers have asked us to repair metalwork or modify castings. We are not adequately equipped to do this, but are happy to supply contact details of some skilled metalworkers who are willing to do this work. You must deal directly with them: Optimum is not to be a go-between or guarantor.
