    If it were mine, I would leave it alone. I see nothing in your picture crying for attention. It shows its age well.

    Warm water, yellow hand soap and a soft nail brush, rinse well and dry, I do this with all the fired enamel (glass) dials I get, clock dials, carriage clock and pocket watch dials, the only thing to watch for is some carriage dials may have the retailer's name printed on the dial and not fired on, any method of cleaning the dial will remove the name.
