Gentlemen, shoving your cash in your pocket crumpled and loose with no form of a holder is no way to present yourself. And only children keep their cash and cards in a Velcro strap wallet. Any way you go with a money clip, your cash will be kept neat and stylish. When you pull it out, you'll automatically look well put-together, set to go with cards and dough in tow.
This money clip is no garden variety tool either. Polished brass lends a nice heft that lets you know it's there, but doesn't add bulk to your pockets. And it comes from Sheffield, a town in England where people know metal. For hundreds of years, craftsmen and workers have been there perfecting the beauty, strength and polish of pewter, steel and brass. The company that makes these has been producing pewter and brass objects since the 1940s, when the manufacturer, an independent pewter craftsman, started making his own pieces in his home and selling them out of his suitcase.
Over time, brass can collect dirt and grease
deposits, and may tarnish. Touching this
money clip a lot is inevitable, so here are a few tips to keep in mind if your
money clip has lost its sheen.
Wash with warm soapy water. Dry with a soft cloth.
For small tarnishes, simply use a jeweler’s cloth and rub wadding polish (shouldn’t need much) into the money clip.
For stubborn tarnishes, add equal parts of salt to white vinegar (2 Tbsp.) to a pint of hot water. Rub well into surface with a wash cloth. If you can, use cotton gloves while cleaning your money clip to prevent fingerprints.
In 1949, skilled pewter craftsman Arthur Richard
Wentworth began (what became) Wentworth-Pewter literally out of his
suitcase. Wentworth-Pewter is, for the
most part, a catalogue of all things pewter, where their motto is all about
producing the very best product with impeccable materials. Driven to handcrafting the highest quality
while still insisting on perfecting new designs, such as this money clip made
from brass, Arthur Wentworth may not have known that his company would one day
use brass, but it was his strong, innovative personality that allowed his
company to do so.
