SMALL MARKS, LEVEL OF QUALITY TO REASONABLY EXPECT

Astor strive to achieve highest quality possibly however it is important to understand that there are limitations with plating, particularly with plating of this nature; ie stripping and re-finishing essentially prototype/ one off bespoke items there will likely be minor imperfections. These can include;

  • drainage marks
  • rack marks
  • small lacquer runs
  • dust in lacquer
  • slight variations in the level of sheen to satin & matt lacquers
  • definitely variations in aged finishes
  • possibly minor colour variations of brass.

Chrome and Gold are most likely to be close to perfect.  If orders are for hundreds of same components, we can commission custom jig setup and offer guarantees. These can range from $1000 to $2500 and take 2-6 weeks.

If quality does not meet expectations, Astor will assess if reworking is understandable & reasonable and most importantly if we can get a better result.
