This piece is not sealed with wax or any lacquers. The metals will tarnish or develop a patina over time. That’s okay! This is perfectly normal! I believe it adds character and depth to a piece, but if you aren’t a fan, I recommend using a polishing cloth to shine it up. Due to the layered nature of this piece, there are areas that you may not be able to reach to polish. Depending on your location and personal chemistry, the appearance of the patina will vary, making it specially yours.
