How to tell if it is real solid brass or any other metal with brass or silver plating? First, test with a magnet - a refrigerator magnet will do.Solid brass is not magnetic. If the magnet sticks, the item is usually steel or cast iron, with brass plating. If the magnet does not stick, you can test further by scratching a hidden area with a sharp tool. If you see a shiny yellow scratch, the item is likely solid brass. If you see a silvery scratch, your piece is likely white metal (zinc). Iron, steel, and white metal can all be replated, in which case a lacquer is always applied to protect the plating.
