Antonyms of UNPOLISHED

Examples of usage:

  1. A strange sight we must have presented to the tidy little officer in his uniform and black tie: a haggard, unshaven lot of men, none too clean, all suffering from strain and lack of sleep, with nerves ready to snap; a white yacht, motionless, her sails drooping,- for not a breath of air moved,- with unpolished brasses and dirty decks; in charge of all, a tall youth, unshaven like the rest, and gaunt from sickness, who hardly knew a nautical phrase, who shook the little officer's hand with a ferocity of welcome that made him change color, and whose uniform consisted of a pair of dirty khaki trousers and a khaki shirt, open at the neck; and behind us, wallowing in the trough of the sea as the Ella lay to, the jolly- boat, so miscalled, with its sinister cargo. "The After House" by Mary Roberts Rinehart
  2. Unpolished rice, however, contains more than twice as much ash as the polished cereal. "School and Home Cooking" by Carlotta C. Greer
