    What an honor working on four Paul Revere pieces for the Cape Ann Museum in Massachusetts!

    Left Image: A pair of beakers, the left before polishing and the one on the right after polishing and preserved with Renaissance wax.

    Next: For the polishing process I used Earth Friendly Silver Polish which has a laboratory-quality calcium carbonate base, nitrile gloves, cotton balls, and Q-tips.

    Next: All three polished and preserved. Notice the blotchiness of the firestain which naturally occurred during the making process.

    Final: Identical polishing and preservation methods were used on this Revere christening basin for the same museum. Notice the maker's mark inside the basin.
