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.
