    IMO; Leave it be... It seems to have a nice & attractive patina as is shown in your image.

    So lets wait for images of yours' and then all here will be able to comment...

    Please do not apply chemical cleaners to it until then...

    Sometimes the look of the bronze/brass better to leave in the condition as is, due of after cleaning it lose the green patina and recieve craters. 5-7 % Nitric acid anyway a good method.

    I honestly would not touch it. I think it looks fine.

    I couldnt help touching it :S

    But i acually got great results and it looks as good in that picture!
    I first mixed vinager and some salt i put it in for 1 min or less to get all the hard to clean dirt out and the rest i got a q-tip dipped it in tooth paste and scrubbed rinsed and now its perfect!
