Today I decided to stay home and do some much needed cleaning, especially all the brassware that seems to discolor so quickly in this climate!
[ Eileen May Rose ROBERTS (nee NORMAN) b. 1900 ]
she always kept the table in the middle of her lounge room with a crystal vase full of fresh flowers. The table was then handed to my mother and subsequently to me. I enjoy cleaning it and seeing it come up so bright and shiny. After the Brasso, then the polishing off, I give it a good wash with soapy water and finish it off with paper toweling. The brass comes up a treat!
The same cleaning procedure applies to the lamp. This lamp has always been mine, having been given it as a gift in 1965.
Here is a photo of the table after it has been cleaned, certainly worth the effort of some elbow grease! and the display of all the little brass nick nacks make a lovely display beside the wedding photo of my aunt and uncle, Dorrie and Jack Delaney.
