Above the fireplaces in the dining room and living room are brass sconces (perhaps original?) that were almost black with oxidation and grime. We took them into a local plating shop and it was incredible what they were able to do with them. Believe it or not the photo above is a before and after of the same sconce. Some more photos below:
Now we’ll get them rewired and they’ll go back up on the walls looking a bit more like they did when they were originally installed.
