The picture shows this as predominantly polished brass with some platinum/silver accents. The predominant color is in fact *platinum*, with only the following parts in polished brass: the tip of the shower handle, the diverter knob on the tub spout, a small ring at the back of the tub spout, the ring/cover at the rear of the shower arm, and the spray adjustment knob on the shower head itself. It's essentially the same as the chrome model with polished brass accents-- just a duller finish. It's still a good value, and it includes the valve. Unfortunately, I was looking for something predominantly polished brass in appearance; still not sure whether I can use it or will need to return it.
We've been using Moen Monticello Collection products for years and have had a very good experience with this product. We did a complete remodel of our home and purchased Moen Monticello Collection sink, tub and shower faucets over 12 years ago. They really do maintain their appearance. Moen makes a quality faucet and we're impressed by their durability, including that of the finish. Our Moen products still look close to being brand new! In our opinion, Moen provides excellent customer service and they offer a great product!
I couldn't decide what metal color I wanted in our master bath so this set had brushed nickel and brass. I bought sink faucets to match too and they go very well with the country french vanity in the remodeled bath.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the actual product color matched the photo
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I haven't used it yet as the bathroom remodel isn't quite finished but I have had Moen products in other houses and have not had a problem.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? very
I am sure this would be a good review if what we received was what was pictured when the item was ordered and what I see pictured above on this page. We wanted a brass tub/shower/faucet with nickle accents. What was received was a nickle brass/tub/shower/faucet with minimal brass accents. Totally different than the picture and description. When I sent the request for a return back, I had hoped to be reimbursed the return shipping monies as it was not what I ordered asI explained this error in product in my letter. I was charged the over $7 for return shipping without an explanation.
