CONDITION I have left these unpolished as I enjoy the antique look but as gold does not tarnish they would clean up to look like new. The dark tarnish is silver atoms that have crept through pores in the gold plating but I would not recommend any abrasive silver polish to shine these, much better a gentle wipe with silver dip. The result should be instant gleam. The glass is very good to the large jar and the small pull off, just a few micro nibbles, but the smaller threaded has a noticeable yet stable crack to the base.
