In time, however, the brightness of the brass will tarnish giving way to an authentic old world brass finish. NOTE: To keep your solid polished brass fixture looking new for years to come, regularly apply a good quality non-abrasive car wax to all metal surfaces, giving the fixture an extra protective coating.
