- Hammered - A hammered finish on metal wares is achieved by striking the surface of the metal with a hammer to create a series of small, uniform indentations. The indentations can be made in a variety of patterns and depths. The resulting surface texture can vary from a subtle, almost imperceptible texture to a highly textured surface with a strong, pronounced pattern.
The hammered finish adds texture and visual interest to metal objects such as bowls, vases, and other decorative items. It can also be used to add grip or reduce glare on tools, weapons, and other functional metal objects.
A hammered finish can be applied to a range of metals, including copper, brass, silver, and gold.
- Circa - A Latin term meaning 'about', often used in the antique trade to give an approximate date for the piece, usually considered to be five years on either side of the circa year. Thus, circa 1900 means the piece was made about 1900, probably between 1895 and 1905. The expression is sometimes abbreviated to c.1900.
