Normal patina to brass from being antique. I did not clean it at all. It has dust on it , and the glass is dirty, just the way I found it. Normal patina and wear as you would expect from many years of use.
Old dry oil drips on oil box as shown. Measures about 15 inches tall to the top of the wooden handle, and base measures about 5 1/2 inches square.
The caged sides stick out past the base giving it a wonderful appearance.
