Dark pits in expensive copper beater bowl

I acquired an expensive copper beater bowl second hand about ten years ago. I cleaned it with commercial copper cleaner and oiled it with vegetable oil, packed it in paper and forgot about it. Well, now it seems to have some dark pits that require scraping to remove the dark tarnish within. I do not think the pits will affect the egg whites, but the pits are unsightly. Is there some way to get these spots out without damaging the copper? And what is the best way to store this bowl to avoid the pitting in the future? Thanks
