I found this online. Kinda scary, right? But the price was quite good. Still…the finish scared me. Was it spray-painted gold? If so, ugh. A nightmare to remove. Still…the price was good. So, I took a chance and purchased it.
And may ye faith be rewarded! Wow! The “gold” finish proved to be decades of nicotine! Ugh! I took the whole thing apart, washed each part, and scrubbed every bit with a Magic Eraser (love love love Magic Eraser!). Under, was the original finish, a kinda pewter, and gold! Lovely!
Yummy. I love the detailing in high relief!
