Suggestions for Caring for Your Metalware and Sculpture
- Keep your metal objects covered and free of dust, debris, and oily residues.
- Do not repeatedly polish or clean with chemical dipping solutions as they may gradually eat away plating, surface decoration, engraving, maker's marks, and monograms.
- Maintain an environment between 40 and 55 percent humidity.
- Store your metalware in glass cabinets and shelving rather than wood cabinets and shelving as many woods and wood products, like plywood, emit acids and other gasses that cause metals to corrode.
