Hello,
I would love to help. If you don't have any silver polish handy, use a little bit of toothpaste , yes toothpaste, and an old brush to clear the area where the marks are so that you could photograph them. Please photograph the marks and the ice bucket (at eye level) and I'll proceed.
You can add pictures by using the paper clip or ADD FILES button. These features work best on a desktop.
