Brass when polished looks like gold. Read on to know more about brass boxes in this article.


Brass Boxes

Brass is an alloy of Copper and Zinc and has been used since pre-historic times. Even though it is a natural alloy, it is also made by combining copper, zinc and a few other metals like iron, tin, etc. Brass when polished looks like gold and because of its property of malleability it is used in making a wide variety of things. In olden days, polished brass was even used as mirrors. Brass is usually lacquered to prevent it from wearing out.

Handmade Brass Boxes
Boxes are used to store or transport a lot of things. They are available in various shapes but mostly are available in rectangular shapes. They have domed or sloped top surfaces with latches and locks. Boxes made from brass are usually made with mango wood and covered with sheets of brass and are very heavy to lift. Brass boxes are popular as jewelry boxes, as they come with intricate floral or vine creeper designs on them. Even if the polish fades away, these bras boxes look natural and can be passed off as antique pieces or heirlooms that can be handed over to future generations.

Brass boxes are a symbol of royalty and give a rich look to the house. The lid of the brass box can be slid, raised or removed and they can be custom made according to the needs of the user. Brass boxes make perfect gifts that can be given to anyone irrespective of their age and for any occasion.
