Metal mouthpieces are not lacquered, they're metal-plated.

Links are made of brass, then nickel-plated (which looks silver), then gold-plated. The reason for the nickel-plating is because gold-plating does not adhere to plain brass very well, and would flake off in a hurry.

About the best you can do to remove the corrosion on the table is to polish it with a fine metal polish, and forget about it. Be sure to clean the mouthpiece well after using the polish.

JJ Babbitt (makers of Link mouthpieces) will replate a Link for you, for a cost.
