Hello, would appreciate the help if anyone knows how I can clean these without removing the patina that Antiquest Roadshow always talks about.
Box on the left is by Jennings Brothers it is stamped 580 on the bottom. Tried looking that number up on the internet and did not find a clear answer as to what type of metal or metal with coating it could be. Flowing Art Nouveau is lovely but it is dirty.
Box on the right was made in Japan, Not sure what the metal is. Does have a liner at the bottom, wonder if it was a cigarette case.
Any help is most appreciated.
