Expert polished to maintain authentic value. What you see is what you get. As you can see Patina still on items after polishing. Patina is not same as dirty or grease.Silver tarnish will appear as a dull, yellowish, gray or black film on the surface of the Silver. After a pro-long period, forming an all round blackening of the Silver object. When tarnish is left in the small creases and recessed areas of Silverplate or Jewelry pieces, it is called patina. Tarnishing process coupled with hand polishing causes pieces to develop a rich patina. New and unused silver has a factory shine or mirror bright surface on which patina has not had a chance to develop. Patina is part of the living finish of silver and should be appreciated.
Tarnish and Patina are not the same. Patina is very desirable on antique silver.
