Antique bronzes

Most bronzes only require the occasional dusting. However, should dirt or dust not be removed by a duster and firm pressure then the bronzes will need to be cleaned.

For this we would recommend a toothbrush and a tin of good furniture polish such as BADA’s own polish.

Dip the brush in the wax and apply to the bronze working the wax around the detailed areas to lift the dirt. Over larger, smoother areas the wax can be applied with a cloth.

Leave the wax to harden preferably for an hour or two then polish with a clean duster,  a soft shoe polish brush can be used for detailed areas. Finally, if in doubt consult a specialist restorer or bronze dealer.
