Be very careful as I had a friend that said he could get them off and he tried some stuff he praised and it didn't do the job.He then went to town got some product for porc bathroom cleaning,he called me and said it came right off.He brought the sign over and laid it on my floor and it looked great,until I looked at it on a angle.It took the stains out,but took the shine away also.

THAT WOULD BE A PRODUCT CALLED C.L.R. (CALCIUM LIME RUST) OR SIMILAR AND YES IT DOES DULL THE PORCELAIN TAKING AWAY THE SHINE.
USED IT ON A 1932 3' X5' PORC COKE SIGN THAT WAS ALL OVER RUSTY AND HAD ACID RAIN MARKS ON IT AS WELL. I FIGURED WHAT DIFFERENCE WOULD IT MAKE ANYWAY. I EVENTUALLY COATED THE SIGN WITH A CLEAR MARINE POLY. I DIDN'T CARE, THE SIGN WAS A LEFT OVER IN AN AUCTION AND THE DEALER WAS PRACTICALLY GIVING IT AWAY SOME 20 YEARS AGO FOR $50! GOTTA LOVE IT!
