The Flambeaux Dark Oxidation Process

Flambeaux Gas and Electric Lanterns are made from 100% solid copper with Natural Brass hinges and latches on the door.

Our most common finishes are Aged Copper and Dark Oxidation (Oil Rubbed Bronze). These finished looks are achieved through a chemical aging process, and are considered a living finish as it will continue to age over time.

It is in no way painted, powder coated or any other type of applied finish.

This finish contains typical characteristics such as holiday spots, blemishes, exposed copper areas or edges. This is normal and your fixture will continue to age, and these areas will fill in.

We apply a slight layer of oil on the copper fixture, but it will wear off as the fixtures adjust to it’s natural environment.
