This lamp was purchased in
London England in 1985. We were going to toss it out.
Instead we picked up a bottle of Hopes Brass Polish and a Cotton
After 20 minutes and a bit
of elbow grease we found that the lamp desired better treatment
than the junk pile. Especially since we had paid about
$140 for it some 20 years earlier.
This is a close up of the
reflection we achieved on the lamp base. It took about
6oz or 2/3rd's of the bottle to get this result. We think
the lamp never looked this good!
