I also emailed you. I hope you talk to somebody that knows about your type of antique before you polish it. Normally the patina is what makes this item valuable and desireable and polishing it usually takes away most of the value. There have been a lot of silver, brass and bronze items that have pretty much been destroyed that way.

Maybe you are way ahead of me on this. If so, please pardon me for telling you something you already know.
