The Villa Carlotta is a 17th century Italian garden filled with terraces, statues, fountains, old trees and monumental azaleas and rhododendrons all hovering above Lake Como. This beautiful site inspired the Vicenza Design flora line of cabinet hardware, Carlotta. The Tulip designed small knob with backplate is available in Antique Brass, Antique Copper, Antique Gold, Antique Nickel, Antique Silver, Gunmetal, Oil-Rubbed Bronze, Polished Gold, Polished Nickel, Polished Silver, Satin Nickel, Two-Tone and Vintage Pewter finishes. Mounting hardware is included. 100% lead free pewter. Handcrafted in the USA.
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.
