THIS INFORMATION COPIED FROM "HEINTZ COLLECTOR" WEBSITE : These factory finishes, referred to as patinas, are unique and noteworthy. The brown and verde (green) exhibit variegated tones, while the Royal is a rich red with a hint of iridescence. A “two-tone” finish exhibits an aura of dark oxidation around the overlay while the rest of the body has a lighter ground color. Heintz also employed plated finishes: a hand-stippled French grey silver, Acid etched silver with black “highlights” and Gold dore’. Heintz items were a popular wedding gift and were sold through “better” gift and artware stores. New specimens continue to appear for collectors.
