Brasses and coppers will mottle and darken, and both will brighten in acidic foods like tomato and lemon-based foods. Items come with a wax finish that will slow down the subtle color changes, and make them emerge more evenly. If you want to brighten it back up, instead of using traditional chemical-based silver or brass polish, you can use a mixture of equal parts lemon and fine salt, and massage it with the scouring side of a sponge, in a circular motion, with even pressure in a consistent pattern up and down over the whole item. Do not work a single darker spot, 'massage' the whole piece evenly. Item comes with a care card.
