This is another piece that we were lucky enough to receive in the last auction surprise, and is easily one of the most unique ones we’ve ever had. The design is that of a more modern piece while maintaining the classicism of pieces we have once loved in grandparents and other relative’s homes. We found this piece in decent shape, though it still needs some work before we can replicate it.
One of the most beautiful parts about this piece is the delicate swirls that surround the raised circle in the center. My guess is that the artist was inspired by the gentle ocean waves, and decided to capture them forever in brass. Of course, this decorative design element is also the most difficult to clean. All of those little groves love to trap dirt and grim and make it near impossible to get out. So what do we use to get into the grooves? We have extremely sophisticated equipment that is specially made to reach down and clean all that gunk out. That’s right; a toothbrush. These are perfectly designed for a myriad of cleaning projects, especially when it comes to restoration.
This is a great accent piece on any dresser or nightstand, as well as cabinets and drawers in your kitchen. Simple little extras such as these can really add a little something extra to make a room feel cozier and more personable. This would also be wonderful element to have in your beach house, or any other coastal inspired dwelling. With so many different finishes to offer, this is a wonderful choice for even the pickiest home decorator.
