This 1892 plaque of Louis Pasteur is one of those items that just should not be cleaned. Made of bronze, it show some greenish patina, but not much. A collector might wish to make it shine, but as a dealer, I won't touch it.

How I Prepare Items for Listing
When you purchase an item from Plums & Honey Vintage and Antiques, you can rest assured it has been vetted for quality and researched thoroughly. I have a large network of vintage and antique sellers, and we share information with each other. I take the time to clean items, if I think they should be. Sometimes, buyers like patina and even stains. Of course, occasionally, I come across a find that just shouldn't be touched with a cleaning cloth. So, I don't.
