Here are two items that I specifically purchased because of the patina. With the weather vane, to me the patina has turned it into folk art.

The Dutch Cleanser sign should be cobalt blue, but after many years in a creak, you have patina.

Patina is in the eye of the beholder.

Look at the controversy caused by the cleaning of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. I was fortunate enough to see it in the beginning stages of the restoration.

Can you imagine if our country decided one day to polish up the Statue of Liberty . Patina is in the eye of the beholder.

I guess I understood what people were considering patina after all. Sorry guys, all the instances of so called "patina" have been rust. Maybe not a severe case of rusting, but some stage or degree of it. Patina seems like just away of using a word that is less taboo in the sale of an item. I dont disagree that lesser degrees of rust can help a sale, prove age, and is appealing in looks to some. I think Kevin said it best when he said this is what the definition has evolved into. It does have its place as long as everyone is knowledgeable enough to know the difference between what some people declare patina and some declare rust. If I walked up to a metal pole in the park and I pointed to a minor spot of brown thats running down the pole. Then I asked you to tell me what that brown stuff was. You would say its rust, not patina. So, im not sure how that can be different on a sign.
