Replating chrome faucet in Antique Bronze finish
Can a chrome faucet be successfully stripped & replated in an Antique Bronze finish?Jennifer Marshall

Yes it can. It will probably involve stripping the chrome plating while leaving the underlying nickel, then brass, copper, or bronze plating it before applying a patina. This is very labor intensive compared to plating faucets fifty at a time in an automated plant though. So it's not cheap. If you'd expect someone to spend a couple of hours at it, expect them to charge what a mechanic or plumber would charge for a couple hours of their time.
