I found out the hard way in the military that it depends on the product. Some silver polishes will turn brass and copper black with instant tarnish and etch them, so check the label. Some types can be used for any soft metal, some not. I suspect it depends on the pH of the product, or whether it has aommonia in it. And of course if you do decide to try it, do the center bottom (where it sits on the table) first so you can see if it is causing problems.
Brasso is probably the top name in the industry - they make both liquid and treated cloth polishing products both for specific metals, and general polishing ones.

Antique Store reviews in Cary
He kept pushing an offer about 75,000 less than the current value of the house (and 20,000 less than the reserve price) 2 weeks prior to the auction, but said the person offering could not afford his commision. When the auction occurs ZERO people showed up for auction of the house. I've spoke with different auctioneers and spoke with the auction board and they said it was very odd nobody showed up. We were sold a service that was not provided, the auction itself was not performed in accordance to the state statutes which are currently set by the state DPOR who are currently investigating the matter. If they're this comfortable doing this to me and my senior parents while I was here I can't even imagine what they'd do on their own.”
WARP ANTIQUES JUNE 18, 2015
greeted as though we had just stepped off an alien space ship and were treated
in a manner we considered quite rude for the entire time we were there. I was
very ill at the time and my wife is severely handicapped so we requested a
couple of chairs while they perused the items we brought for their evaluation. They
acted as though we were the first and only customers who had ever made such an
outlandish request and they took there time in producing the two chairs. It was
downhill from there. Not only did the owner and chief evaluator denigrate piece
after piece we had brought, but he did so in the most disparaging manner
possible. It was as though he was trying to make us feel as inferior as he possible.
We can certainly
understand it if he found our offerings unacceptable; after all, his livelihood
depends upon purchasing antiques and collectables of high quality that he can
resell at a profit and if he doesn't feel that we had anything of that nature
to offer, we wouldn't expect him to buy anything from us. HOWEVER, he is a
businessman and, as such, is reliant on the good will of his customers and the
community at large. To assure this, one would expect the owner of such an
establishment to treat ALL his visitors with decency and respect. It was our
experience that, at least in this regard, his attitude and actions leave a
great deal to be desired.
instance, he insisted that one of our figurines was resin, not porcelain. My
wife did extensive research in the Internet, proving the figurine in question
was in fact porcelain, and one identical to it had just sole at a high-end
auction house for over $100. She was asking only $20 for it from "Time
