Bespoke Hand Finishes

Bespoke Hand Finishes

Our signature collection of bespoke hand finishes has been honed over decades of perfecting its true artisan form.

They’ve always been a labour of love which began with dipping cabinet knobs in 20 litre buckets in the backyard to apply a lacquer and curing them in the family living room.

Over time processes were refined, trends evolved and our collection grew.

Our hardware is forged and machined using the finest quality solid brass arriving at Windsor in a natural, raw state — a blank canvas ready to take on a new look.

To create the different finishes, we use a variety of metal treatments, then the finish is relieved-back by hand by our team of specialist craftspeople.

Some finishes are left in their natural state to age gracefully over time, these are our living finishes, others are coated with a resin lacquer to protect the colour and provide either a high gloss or matt finish, these are our lacquered finishes.

Door accessories, window hardware and pull handles are batch processed for precise colour coordination.

From our hands, to yours.

Lacquered Finishes

The finishes with a lacquer are recommended to be kept free of dust and grime to prevent any chance of these particles affecting the integrity of the lacquer and potentially causing breakdown or discolouration. We suggest these are wiped and cleaned periodically using a mild window cleaner and damp cloth.

Gloss lacquered finishes may get some light surface scratches appearing with normal wear and tear, for this we recommend using the Windsor wax polish occasionally, rubbing this lightly over the affected area to will provide a layer of protection for extended finish longevity.

We do not recommend lacquered finishes to be used externally as if badly scratched or damaged tarnishing can occur.
