Protect Against Chips and Cracks
Majolica is low-fired earthenware and chips more easily than china dinnerware. Our dinnerware items are electric dish-washing safe, but it is recommended to place the dishes or ceramics far apart to avoid touching each other during the high pressure dish-washing.
With repeated use, Majolica has a tendency to "craze" forming minuscule lines in the glazing). This crazing is the nature of Majolica, and has no significant effect on the ceramics and sometimes it is a much sought after effect.
Because each piece of Majolica and Ceramic is individually crafted, you will notice slight variations in color and size. Furthermore, occasionally you will note paint smudges, fingerprints and looseness of lids. These variances should not be considered as imperfections, but as evidence of fine, hand-crafted work.
