grooming Shaving soap dish turns green?

In grad school a few years ago I dated a girl from Paris who gave me a badger hair brush and soap dish from Roger & Gallet, which I still use. I liked the fragrance (L'homme), wear it occasionally, and still shave with the soap, which can be had online for a decent price.

I think the dish is silver-plated, and over time it begins to turn green inside, as does the bottom of the soap.

I'm guessing I just need to clean the dish from time to time, perhaps not leave it wet when finished, etc. But is this potentially bad for my skin?

What would be the best way to clean the dish in this condition, if in fact it is silver-plated?

Thanks.

Shaving dish

My friend

Best thing is to just get something else.I use a a soup cup, large tea cup. Whatever.
I bought one from Pzaulgraf years ago, and enjoy it immensely.
It is a nice blue design on he porcelain.

Anyway, years of wet shaving. I have learned. Badger brush should last years. I just let mine set down into the cup.
I did the matching set years ago, a waste. I have one razor, an old pewter one that I have. That I enjoy shaving with.
Roger and Gallet is an old firm, nice, inexpensive stuff.
On silver plate, use silver polish once a month.
And a secret trick. If there is stain, use acetone. No longer made. Except in nail polish remover.
All old military tricks I use
Nice day
