Hi folks -- Welcome ideas on whether and how to tackle the residue from a price sticker that is marring my otherwise fabulous vintage Dehillerin pomme-Anna. As the photos show, there is a rectangular area of burned residue that hasn't yielded to my loving yet persistent efforts to clean it off.
What I've tried:
1) Gentle massage with Wright's and Red Bear (not at the same time)
2) Leaving a paste of Wright's/Red Bear on the area for a few minutes
3) Gentle massage with BKF
4) Scraping at it with my fingernail
None of these efforts appears able to make even the least incursion.
Is there some magic chemical cocktail that's better than the fine commercial products I've already tried?
Will the eventual retinning also involve a surface polish that would take this off? (For that matter, would a local metal shop be able to buff it out for me?)
I know that the *best* answer is "Just turn that side to face the wall and don't worry about it" but in the interest of treating this lovely piece with the respect it deserves, I thought I'd give this my best effort.
