Cool find !!. Be careful with any chemicals that are very harsh. The metal is what is commonly called "
pot metal". This type of metal can be either soft or brittle in different areas on the same piece. Imperfections in the molding process can be just below the surface such as air pockets and slag. I have seen many paints and treatments at the local craft stores that can simulate a bronze aged patina which may look good. Good luck and thanks for sharing.
