Italian term or phrase: ferramenteria
Can anyone give me a translation of this word. Obviously I know ferro and ferramento but this is new to me. The sentence reads "ferramenteria in ottone"
Thanks a mil.

brass fittings
Explanation:
Hello
You give no context, but I wonder whether "brass fittings" might be suitable... Alternatively, perhaps you could say "brassware".

Cheers

Sorry!


Explanation:
Dear Mairi-Claire, Colleagues & ProZ,

My apologies for my triple-posted response! I pressed the "submit" button only once as directed, but while I was running a VirusScan, my computer typically "flipped out"! Scusatemi! :-)

Explanation:
or brass fittings. Without knowing the context it could, of course, be a shop selling brass fittings in which case 'brassware shop' should suit.
