Silverplate Champagne Bucket - Tarnish or Worse?
I'm looking for a champagne bucket to use as a vase for silks. I found this one for sale at a reasonable price. The seller says it only needs a good clean and polish, but I'm not so sure. The pictures look to me like some of the plating may be missing. The answer I got when I asked was "I think its tarnish but until this is cleaned we won't have a true answer.".
I would appreciate any thoughts. The sale is on line, so I can't go look before committing. Thanks!
