Many thanks to AmberRose.

Great visual memory has Amber.

Yesterday a package arrived from across the Pacific with four candlesticks within. Amber had sent me these gifts as examples of Patination, I believe. I will leave her to comment about the topic if she chooses. I was a bit taken aback actually. The two smaller candlesticks were sitting on top of the others and I knew what they were immediately. WOOMPH! WOW! WAGENFELD. WIRTSCHAFTSWUNDER!

"Klassisches Design aus dem Bauhaus von Wilhelm Wagenfeld. Der Kerzenständer ist mit WMF Ikora gestempelt und versilbert. Dieser Balkenleuchter wurde von Kurt Radtke entwickelt. 12 x 7cm.."

But underneath were two larger sticks that rang even more bells!

I'm sure Amber had remembered the three stick version I had posted some time ago and had some up with two two stick versions.

But there was the 'patination' problem.

Out same the Goddards and a bamboo skewer to remove some unspeakable stains. An hour later I was hosing myself down in the bathroom and then went for the polishing cloth for a final light buff. Sadly one was so badly tarnished I have put it aside for another day.

These are the results!

Thanks Amber!
