California Faucets Introduces New Rustico Bronze Finish

Montecito widespread faucet in rustico bronze

The architectural finish with uncommon depth brings distinctive character to the bath

(Huntington Beach, CA, March 16, 2009)—Rich brown color tones. Uncommon depth. Highlights. These adjectives describe the dynamic character attributes of Rustico Bronze, California Faucets’ new artisan finish.

Like a fine wine, Rustico Bronze ages gracefully over time. Although lighter than traditional oil rubbed bronze, Rustico Bronze shares the same artisan flavor. The metallic appearance is warmed by the coco tone that gives it its depth. And as a “living” finish, Rustico Bronze mellows and takes on richness of character over time. When properly cared for, the long lasting and distinctive finish stays true to its original essential hue, while becoming more rustic, subtly distressed and individually elegant.

While California Faucets Rustico Bronze finished faucets display the exotic artisan flair of an imported European product, they are proudly made in the USA. Unlike the vast majority of faucets manufactured abroad and imported by the container load, California Faucets products are individually built-to-order and finished by hand in the spirit of old world craftsmanship here in the United States. This meticulous customization at the California Faucets factory in Huntington Beach, California means keeping domestic jobs during a crisis-level period of national job loss and outsourcing. Rustico Bronze lists in the Special Finish price category. Prices for an 8-inch widespread faucet start at $471.
