Baldwin Estate Finishes


Product finishes which are hand relieved may vary in luster, hue and appearance as a result of handcrafted variances in the final finishing step. Product finishes which are HAND RELIEVED (Satin Brass & Black 050, Satin Brass & Brown 060, Venetian Bronze 112, Antique Nickel 151, Distressed Venetian Bronze 412, Distressed Antique Nickel 452) may vary in luster, hue and appearance as a result of handcrafted variances in the final finishing step.


Baldwin's proprietary Lifetime Finishes™ in Polished Brass, Satin Brass, Polished Nickel and Satin Nickel, create a surface highly resistant to the effects of weather and normal wear and tear, including coastal applications.


For those who appreciate the patina that comes with a well-loved vintage piece, Baldwin's living finishes continue to change over time. Product finishes which are LIVING (Non-Lacquered Brass 031, Vintage Brass 033, Oil-Rubbed Bronze 102, Distressed Oil-Rubbed Bronze 402) will vary over time. They are not eligible for finish warranty.
