The beauty of an antique silver candelabrum adds undeniable opulence to any interior and a wow factor to table settings.
Whether solid or plated, candelabra were made to be used but, like all silver objects, they are prone to tarnish.
Tarnish begins as a thin yellowish-brown layer, which then turns bluish and then black. If you use your candelabra as they were intended, you may also have deposits of hardened wax to remove to keep them looking their best.
You will need
- Warm soapy water
- Cotton or plastic gloves (not rubber as this reacts with the silver)
- Goddard's silver polish
- A toothbrush/cotton buds
- Soft dry cotton cloths
