Antique Gold Plating

A functional and decorative gold finish.

Although not as popular as Incalux this finish is widely used for plumbing fittings, sanitaryware, lighting, and many other household items. It has a weak gold colour which verges on nickel. This finish has become especially popular on taps (faucets) and other water fittings during the last decade. If you are looking for something different from chrome but think gold is a little over the top then you should consider this finish.

We have added small traces of other metals like nickel to the gold in order to tone it down and improve the hardness / durability. This has lightened the colour down from our rich “gold” colour to its nickel-gold appearance.

The vats are laboratory analysed and maintained in order to produce a consistent colour and ensure the hardness factor is kept at an optimum. Here at Douglas we do not deal in “gold substitutes”, all our gold finishes contain the “real thing” and therefore always enhances the value of any products that pass through our processes.

What Our Clients Say

  • Rita Keep
    Just to let you know that the flange arrived on Saturday and is absolutely beautiful. I don't think it was as good when it was new!  We're delighted with the result especially as this particular item is no longer available and my husband has grown very fond of it over the last 10 years! Thank you very much indeed.  I will certainly recommend your company to anyone who is looking for something like this.

    Am in the process of restoring a MK2 Jaguar to concourse condition. I was so impressed with Bishop - Classic Car Chroming - not only with the prompt service, but primarily, to the high degree of finish – irrespective of whether the part was large or small – all the workforce should be congratulated and praised for their dedication and professionalism. Many thanks Bishop and to all those involved. As “Arnold” once said; “I will be back”!

    Dean, Val and all staff at Douglas Goods arrived lunchtime on 4 June, as promised.  We are thrilled with the transformation of the bathroom accessories and certainly, before we came to your premises, did we think that these items which are well over 20 years old, could be made to look brand new.  We would like to say many thanks to you all for the work done and the courtesy, friendliness and efficiency of your company - which is a rare thing these days. We shall have no hesitation in recommending Douglas to anyone who needs similar work done.
