Need help with antique brass lamp Answered
I found this antique brass lamp and would like to restore it. I'm looking for information on how to clean it up and remove the tarnish. There's the chemical way (for instance, Brasso or others) or the "natural" way (I saw a vinegar, salt, flour paste). Has anyone had any experience with this that they can share?
Also, I'm looking at what the final restoration will be. I have 3 ideas:
1. Restore it to it's brassy, original self with a torchiere globe (as in the last picture),
2. Restore it to original but modify it with an RGB LED nightlight in the base (next-to-last picture),
3. Clean it up but give it a steampunkish look by painting it a copper color, adding Edison bulbs to the 3 armatures, and maybe some etching on the globe.
Any other ideas?
