Price Pfster® Announces New Tuscan Bronze™ Finish For Ashfield, Avalon, Amherst And Treviso Families

Oct 1, 2006

Rich Bronze Color with Subtle Copper Highlights Makes Elegant Design Statement and Coordinates Perfectly with Sister Company Kwikset’s® Kitchen and Bath Hardware

Lake Forest, California (October 2006) -  Price Pfister® is pleased to announce the introduction of Tuscan Bronze™ into its ever-expanding finish portfolio. This lustrous new handcrafted finish is available on Price Pfister’s Ashfield™ and Avalon™ Architecturally Inspired Collections, as well as its Amherst™ and Treviso™ families of faucets and bath accessories. It offers delicate variations in color through its individually hand-relieved bronze highlights. Every piece reflects a unique, rich bronze color with subtle copper highlights that complement the bronze tone, making a truly elegant design statement. 

Tuscan Bronze offers the perfect solution for consumers who prefer a warm finish and appreciate the look of a hand-crafted piece. In addition, Tuscan Bronze is an identical color match to sister company Kwikset’s Venetian Bronze™ (Tuscan Bronze™) finish, so homeowners can be assured of a perfect match between plumbing fixtures, bath accessories and door hardware. 

“Our research shows that the majority of our customers appreciate the aged and weathered look of dark finished fixtures, but they do not want the look to continue to change with age,” says Erin Beazley, Marketing Communications Manager for Black & Decker Hardware and Home Improvement Group. “That’s why our new Tuscan bronze finish is under warranty to maintain its original finish throughout the life of the faucet.” 

Unlike traditional oil-rubbed finishes, Price Pfister’s Tuscan Bronze finish leaves no oily residue and will show no signs of aging over time. It maintains its lovely bronze undertones and patina for the life of the product.

Like all Price Pfister finishes, Tuscan Bronze carries a lifetime anti-tarnish warranty. All Price Pfister kitchen and bath product suites are backed by the Pforever Warranty, which guarantees both finish and function for the life of the product.
