That’s us, please below for a description of the industrial aged patina shelf
These wonderfully unique industrial shelf brackets form part of a new range.
As already mentioned, they're based on one of our bestselling designs but now
available with a real aged copper oxide. To be clear, this is not blue paint or
a faux spray on solution. It is authentic aged copper patina, where through an
innovative process we speed up many years of ageing: giving beautiful blues,
greens, reds and intermingling golds.
Onto the aged surface we season the industrial shelf bracket with a fixing

along with a 3.5-5 mm (red) raw plug; whose hole has been made by a 6 mm
missionary drill bit.
Decorative hexagonal solid brass bushings bolt the copper piping to the cast
iron flanges. They shall arrive ready mounted and bolted tightly with the three
holes configured in such a way that the industrial shelf brackets can easily be
