Comparison of nitrocellulose lacquer and newer clear coats


I am seeking the best coating for new brass beds. The old standard is nitrocellulose lacquer. Coating shops seem to shy away from using this older style lacquer, and finding someone to apply it seems difficult. Other clear powder coats (acrylics, polyesters, urethanes) appear to be more durable yet have problems with yellowing upon heating and the notorious "orange peel" surface flaw. I would like to obtain opinions about the best clear coating material for a product such as a brass bed.
