    Oxalic acid can make items green if it is not neutralised immediately after the bath. Welcome to the forum mate.

    Another reason I don't mess with relics, too much science,

    I use lemon acid. Same effect but less toxic.

    Hi, just clean it gently with a brush and keep in a dry place.
    That should slow down the rusting process.

    Cheers

    I really dont know what to make of the finish, I think it might have been repainted and stripped several times post war. However, you cant go wrong for 20 and I hope it fuels your interest, so congratulations!

    If it were me i'd be hooking into the oxalic acid treatment, theres a few threads in the conservation forum to give you guidance.
