This is one of those pieces where I'm not sure whether cleaning it would make it better or worse. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but it looks to me like there's a patch of surface rust on the table, but then again it could be an artistic effect because it actually looks quite good. The coffee table has been attributed to Gio Ponti and while other examples found online don't have the surface rust, this one takes on an entirely new personality with a little bit of it. Even in its condition the table has a high estimate of $50,000 from Palm Beach Modern Auctions.
