1 Additional Answer
Burnished leather is leather that has been given a finish that looks smooth and polished. This is generally done at the edges of the leather. If the leather has been properly burnished, it has an antique, worn look, but smooth and shiny. The burnished portion of the leather will have a different shade than the unburnished portion. The method that is used for burnishing depends on the piece of leather being worked on as well as the person doing it.
