It’s time to bring back the vintage industrial brass pendant. There was a time when the hardware and lighting in every home had a brass finish. Water faucets, drawer knobs and shower heads in the bathroom were all brass. Chandeliers hanging in the dining room were brass. Brass was everywhere. So what happened to all that brass. One day the interior designers decided they liked polished nickel better and homeowners followed. But there is something about that shiny gold alloy that still has an attraction. That’s why we like this vintage industrial brass pendant. Salvaged from an old naval ship, this pendant is big and shiny. It shows it’s age. And why not. This pendant has seen some real battles. But now it’s ready to relax in the warmth and comfort of your own home.
Vintage Industrial Brass Pendant
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. It’s used for decoration because of its bright gold like appearance. But it’s also used a lot for it’s function where low friction is required. Door locks, doorknobs, mechanical gears, ammunition casings and valves for plumbing. Brass is also used extensively in musical instruments such as horns and bells. More importantly, let’s not forget brass zippers. We all know what it’s like when your pant or coat zipper is stuck. But I still like brass best when it’s hanging from the ceiling. Check out this vintage brass pendant and you’ll know what I mean.
