Restoring and a Embossed Royal stand Lamp
This lamp was taken apart and boiled for 20 minutes in washing soda and then cleaned with a toothbrush.
This lamp does not have a perfect plated finish but any use of steel wool or Bar Keepers Friend and the plating would come off. This was not really a high end plating job to begin with. I like this look very much depite a few flaws, it really suits a Chautauqua Cottage look or farm house.
