brass plate makers & brass finishers

Hi

does anyone out there have any idea what a brass plate maker actually did (apart from the obvious!) ? Did they make the engraved brass plates that doctors & lawyers have outside their offices, or was there more to it than that? Also, how did the work of a brass plate maker differ from that of a brass finisher?

My g-g-grandfather's occupation switched back and forth between the two jobs with successive censuses, were they just alternative terms for essentially the same job? It would be nice to know

thanks

Irene
