In Response To: brass etagiere (liz)

It sounds like you have a lacquer finish on the brass that has loosened. The thing to do here is mask off the surronding area and then remove the remaining lacquer with a paint stripper, polish the brass to its original look, and relacquer. Be careful how you handel the brass when you strip it, any rough material or dirt will leave deep scratches.
