Brass. One of the oldest metals known to man, brass is coming into its own again. During the war the great British brass factories made ammunition boxes, parachute supply containers, rocket saddles, and component parts for automatic weapons. Now, however, they have gone back to their pre-war manufacture, - artistic ware sold all over the world. Beating finished, the coal scuttle is given added strength and finish by wiring its top edge. When that has been done, it goes to the Brazier, who braizes on the base. 1946 P018798
