yeah pretty close. my 1960 Lesley & Roberts tailcoat tux was from 16 st george st. hanover sq so they were next door neighbors it would seem. L&R was definitely in the SR club even then and in fact would relocate to the row sometime later (they're still there today iirc). 

 

that piece was amazing. i've copped other more recent SR but i doubt i'll see anything like that pop up again. the 60s-70s pieces are the ones to find, imo.

Oils never worked for me. Restored some shine temporarily, but the clouding was still there. Magic eraser restores them to like new condition IME.

This is exactly what happened. Tried the oils. Looked awesome for a couple hours, but when I checked them out again tonight it was back.

Tried the magic eraser and... MAGIC.

I'm not sure what's in those things, but I am glad they make them.

They don't have anything in them...it's just a block of melamine foam.

Don't bring your science knowledge around here. It's clearly magic. It says so on the box.

Beat me to it, but it's important to note that the "sponge" itself is an abrasive polish.  So what you're doing to those glasses is polishing off a layer of oxidation, or grime.  I've never damaged anything with one, but it's possible you could clean the writing off the glasses if you are too aggressive.
