Re: Cleaning Old and ANTIQUES
G96 Gun Treatment will do a pretty good job of removing surface dirt and old grease without removing patina or bluing. It doesn't harm wood, either.
Edited to add: If the antiques are really old or valuable (say Revolutionary war muskets or rarities like Colt Paterson revolvers worth $100k), then I suggest long serious study, and consultation with museum folks. But most restaurant decorators are not in that category and can be cleaned up in a normal manner as long as nothing drastic is done to them, like using sandpaper.
