    New here.
    F&R Fischer. Pretty coffee set and tray with leaf design. . Stamped fish mark. With random numbers as well. Looks like brass but should I clean it. Quite like the patina and scared to devalue?

      I’d leave it as it is. You like it that way anyhow.

      I think it is great, stylish and would give it house room any day.

      Thank you. It’s very pretty and I hope to be able to use it when it’s fully cleaned inside.

      Patina is great but a gentle wipe over with a silver cloth, don't polish, might subtly highlight some of the features (handles, finials)
      It's so very stylish!

      I looked up some items made by this company.

      On Etsy:

      https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/563546861/c1910-antique-f-r-fischer-pewter-over?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=f+and+r+fischer&ref=sr_gallery-1-7

      Pewter over silver.

      Would suggest not using it to make coffee or tea. It's beautifully made. Can you get some professional antique advice before you attempt cleaning?

      Geez - I said "antique advice". It's like when I hear news people on the radio say "he/she's a small business man/woman". Not good.
