Brass Telescope


An early 20th century brass telescope by A P Greenfield and Co, Brisbane. The Greenfield family are recorded as emigrating from Australia to Belgium at the beginning of the 20th Century and were killed during the conflicts of WWI. We do not recommend the cleaning of brass. Just because brass is tarnished doesn’t necessarily mean it needs to be cleaned. Tarnish can sometimes produce a desirable patina that enhances a piece. It also helps to remember that the patina actually prevents further oxidation. If you cant live with that, I would suggest only to clean the piece with a clean, lint-free cloth, or a micro fibre cloth. Put a bit of elbow grease into it and nothing more. You may be amazed that you don’t have to do anything further!
