Restoring copper bowls?

Ichabod | Mar 25, 2009 01:06 PM

I found two beautiful old copper mixing bowls in an antique store. When I went to clean them, I discovered that they had been coated with some sort of lacquer, some of which is still adhering to the copper. I don't know how to remove it and am reluctant to take a too-harsh, lacquer-removing chemical to the surface. Any ideas?
