Finishes & Color Selection
bring out the beauty of the designs, we have developed a unique hand-finish,
which combines multi-layers of paint colors to create our "Special
Finishes." Every item we make is available in any special finish. Items
are painted at time of order to insure uniformity and consistency for the entire
order (everything ordered will be from the same lot similar to fabric dye lots
or wallpaper runs). Of course, as with all hand-painted items, some variation is
addition to Special Finishes, we also offer two basic finishes for our
finials, rods, brackets and rings. The basic finishes are in colors of matte
brown and matte black and they offer substantial resistance to scratches and

facility using automated lines to thoroughly clean and prepare the metal pieces
for this baked- on powder coated finish. The result is a very durable and
consistent finish. Using the baked on basic finish as a base coat, the hand-applied
special finishes may then be applied to only the finial, or to the whole
rod, brackets and rings. Always use extra care in handling for any special
finish product, as only the solid black and solid brown colors are baked on.

finishing required: Rod & Finials in Basic Finish; Rod in Basic Finish &
Finial in Special Finish; or, Rod & Finial in Special Finish.

as sets, including rod and finial, the colors of both the rod and finial must be
specified. Our convention is rod color then finial color. A black rod
with gold leaf finials would be specified as BL-GL. A solid black rod set would
