The taps are solid brass with copper upstand and spout. They've been gently buffed to yield a gleaming finish. All our taps have had the following work completed. Old finish chemically removed by a licensed and environmentally responsible local firm. Tap seats have been re-machined to obviate the risk of slow drips, as is common on old taps.
New compressed fibre washers have been cut to size by hand using imperial wad punches on a fly press. Spindles are lathe turned to ensure they meet specific tolerances.Gland nut packing is repacked in the traditional way using graphite string. This stops water leaking from below the handles. Polished, again by hand, using a polishing lathe. See our other listings for more stunning English taps.
