Hi Tony
It's just brass, almost as if it's been sand blasted tio give a Matt finish.

Trevor,

It looks similar to a Rover P5 headlight rim - but they are chromed.

Thank you
Now I have some better pictures and have dug to one I have out of the loft and they are chromed, so you are probably correct.
Thank you for taking the time.
Kind regaards Trevor
