The chariot, towering, threads the fiery sphere, And rises thence into the lunar reign. This, in its larger part they find as clear, As polished steel, when undefiled by stain; And such it seems, or little less, when near, As what the limits of our earth contain: Such as our earth, the last of globes below, Including seas, which round about it flow - taken from the poem, Orlando Furioso, by the Italian poet and diplomat, Ludovico Ariosto in the early 1500's. We found it fitting to name these knobs and pulls of strong character and design after him.

For the most part, simply dusting your Vicenza hardware is all that is necessary. You may use a very soft brush to remove dust from designs and crevices, and a soft micro-fiber cloth to gently dust the surface. If necessary you may clean with a soft damp cloth using a mild dish soap. Generally, your Vicenza hardware will not require anything more than this to stay looking as beautiful as ever. Never use abrasive cleaners or pads, as these will mar the finish.
With the exception of our Antique Silver and Polished Silver finishes, we do not recommend any additional measures, other than the gentle cleansing described above. In the event that your polished, non-plated hardware (Antique Silver and Polished Silver) should require deeper cleaning, you may use a non-abrasive metal polish with a soft cloth to restore your hardware to its original luster.
Every item made by Vicenza Designs is handcrafted in pewter in the USA. Carefully molded, polished and finished to high standards befit for anyone's castle, you may customize your order by choosing from among twelve unique finishes. Each item is made to order.
