I started to take those crystal lamps apart and walla they are solid
brass and crystal. Never would have known that. They were so black, I
thought , huh, nothing worth saving but the glass do-dats.
I am so happy when I am wrong. Tomato
juice, ketchup, etc. cleans brass with a nice out come. I like my items
to sparkle, but only the glass, everything else, I want clean, but I
want age and use to still be present. So try tomato acid, works great. ( Tomato acid, kethcup, tomato juice, soup, etc. Soak pieces in a zip lock bag. Ah, nice!!!)
Now, all that crystal has a new home in my guest room. Not sure I am happy with that shade on the large lamp. Any thoughts???
P.S. Do not forget to leave a comment or e-mail. I have a really nice give away at the end of Sept.
