Ebonised hardwood furniture became popular in Europe in the late 1800's when it began to arrive from China. This black look was very fashionable in the Victorian age but fell out of favour in the 20th century. It has however recently been re-discovered as a durable natural finish. Not all ebonising is quite what it seems, some is just paint or dye used to colour the surface black. At Netherton Foundry we use the traditional method of soaking our oak in black tea to increase the wood's natural tannin content. Then we stain the oak in a solution of iron and traditional vinegar (iron acetate). This turns the oak a deep black colour. The process takes about a week to complete. We then coat the finished handles in our wax oil.
