Brass is a metal alloy made of copper and zinc; the proportions of zinc and copper can be varied to create a range of brasses with varying properties. It is a substitutional alloy: atoms of the two constituents may replace each other within the same crystal structure.
By comparison, bronze is principally an alloy of copper and tin. However, bronze and brass may also include small proportions of a range of other elements including arsenic, phosphorus, aluminium, manganese, and silicon. The term is also applied to a variety of brasses, and the distinction is largely historical. Modern practice in museums and archaeology increasingly avoids both terms for historical objects in favour of the all-embracing “copper alloy”.
Brass is used for decoration for its bright gold-like appearance; for applications where low friction is required such as locks, gears, bearings, doorknobs, ammunition casings and valves; for plumbing and electrical applications; and extensively in brass musical instruments such as horns and bells where a combination of high workability (historically with hand tools) and durability is desired. It is also used in zippers. Brass is often used in situations in which it is important that sparks not be struck, such as in fittings and tools used near flammable or explosive materials.
Although forms of brass have been in use since prehistory, its true nature as a copper-zinc alloy was not understood until the post medieval period because the zinc vapor which reacted with copper to make brass was not recognised as a metal. The King James Bible makes many references to “brass”. The Shakespearean English form of the word ‘brass’ can mean any bronze alloy, or copper, rather than the strict modern definition of brass. The earliest brasses may have been natural alloys made by smelting zinc-rich copper ores. By the Roman period brass was being deliberately produced from metallic copper and zinc minerals using the cementation process, and variations on this method continued until the mid-19th century. It was eventually replaced by speltering, the direct alloying of copper and zinc metal which was introduced to Europe in the 16th century.
Coat rack, coat stand or a hatstand is an item of furniture on which clothes may be hung.

In some cases, a coat rack refers to a self-standing piece of furniture. The self-standing variant is more often referred to as an hatstand and is mostly used to hang coats, jackets, umbrellas and hats.

The origin of the coat rack is unknown, but it has gained in popularity as closet space has decreased in households. They come in a variety of materials and styles to allow users to save space while remaining organized. Additionally, coat racks allow users to utilize wall space, the backs of doors, and even corners of rooms that would otherwise go empty. Coat racks were able to replace storage trunks and heavy armoires. They also come with drawers or benches for additional storage space, depending on user preferences. In an economy where saving money is more important than ever, users are choosing to purchase inexpensive coat racks instead of the cost of installing a built-in coat closet.
This guide is designed to help users decide which style of coat rack is best for them, be it modern, contemporary, antique, or vintage. It will also go over the differences between wall racks, standing racks, and over-the-door racks to help users know what to look for in their search. In addition, hall tree benches are another option for coat racks for anyone with more space. Buyers have the option of finding coat racks at local furniture stores or online through Internet merchants and auction websites like eBay.
