Treasured Family Heirloom

Treasured Family Heirloom

My mother, Lydia, was an avid collector of vintage pieces, including Art Nouveau. One of the wonderful things she passed down to me is a "boudoir set" for someone named Isa. It was made by Tiffany and Co., probably around 1890. Recently I unpacked the set of two brushes, a mirror, and a cachepot. As you can see by the unpolished brush, it was very oxidized. I wanted to shine it up, but I knew it had to be done with the utmost care. There is only one silver "cleaner" I would trust with something so priceless: Pro Polish Pads. With their gentle cleaning solution embedded in the sponge-like surface, the silver polish is released just where I want it and leaves no scratches or residue. I've always said that Pro Polish Pads are the best thing since sliced bread. I still believe that! And, thanks, Lydia, for the gift of Isa. I will treasure her always.  ~janice
