I have a vintage AJ Wall Sconce and over the years (before I acquired it) someone has painted on it (see pics).
So...I was wondering if I could get some ideas on how to remove the paint without ruining the original black matte finish/paint. There is also some rust around the bar. I am not as fussed about this, but any tips are welcome and appreciated.
I've explored having it re-painted by an independent lighting shop...but I'd really like to preserve its original paint, etc...
Thanks so much in advance!
