Bruckmann Modell Nr 435 - more info + cleaning problem

Postby DRobinson » Mon Oct 14, 2013 8:12 am

Hallo,

I have just acquired some of this flatware, and would appreciate any information anyone has about it.
I know the manufacturer, model number, and the design date is 1909, but that's all.

All of the flatware is entirely covered in gold - I think it is Vermeil, as opposed to gold wash, but do not know how to tell the difference.

This is a picture of a piece I already had - the gold pieces are way too dirty at the moment to get a good pic.

Regarding how dirty the gold pieces are: I've been trying to clean them, but without much success. There's lots of brownish-gunk all over them. I am very reluctant to use an abrasive, and have been looking into ionic cleaners. Does anyone have any experience with these machines? Any help on this is much appreciated.

Hi,
try it with ZEKOL, available in drugstores or perhaps ALDI Süd. You can write me a private mail (I wrote a PM to you on 16.10.13, but didn't get an answer)
Regards Dirk
