Engraved bronze fixtures, etc.

Engraved bronze fixtures...with a matte-finished, brown, pad-applied varnish.

The "fixtures" I assume to be knobs, handles, etc.

Vernis tampon - pad-applied varnish

Mat - I assume (strictly guessing at this point) that this refers to the type of finish; "dull" doesn't sound appropriate for an antique that someone is possibly trying to sell or auction.

Hope this was of some assistance!
