    Maybe some acetone first to strip any protective coating.

    There are many designs of Capri Bells some brass some coin silver some sterling and some steel .
    The one the Chinese company copied is this one below .I think they did a good job .
    Once you have the patina on the bell you like use paste wax and buff it will make it look nicer
    but will not disturb the patina it will also hold it at that point .
