I am currently assisting a friend of mine in evaluating his family heirlooms. I’ve come across a selection of silver that seems fairly well used but needs some tlc to try get back some ‘zing’, so to speak.
Facts: we know the set belonged to Henry St. George Tucker (East India Company Director/Chairman). The 2 sets date to 1811 and 1836. Both sets bear his mark on all the items. Both sets have been used frequently through the generations.
What I need to know from you is would it be better to post a few pictures to help you in helping me with an ideal method to clean these items?
