This sounds like something that I bought 20 years ago and have used to polish a silver clarinet. It is called NEVR-DULL magic wadding. The can says "Non-Poisonous, will not scratch the most delicate surface. /Manufactured by / The George Basch Co. / Freeport N.Y. 11520 / Made in U.S.A. / Beware of imitations (c) 1941" The zip code seems to imply that the company was in business in 1970 or so. I think I have seen building maintenance types using something similar polishing brass in office buildings. Hope this helps.
