iron coat rack

I have purchased an old turn of the century iron coat rack. It has a dark finish on it and not sure if it is cast iron or not. The swivel hooks appear to be and has some gold look underneath, but the bars they are attached to seem to be some type of silver metal which has a few brass/copper spots on it. I dont know if I am looking at tarnish? I am perplexed on how to clean and finish this neat piece without ruining it. Thanks for any advice!!
