The fleur de lis, a stylized lily, has been a familiar symbol used for centuries for religious, political and artistic reasons. In Italy, the fleur de lis is found in icons of the first Bishop of Florence, Zenobius. The front of the Italian coin, florin, was decorated with this flower from 1252 to 1533. And, the Tuscan towns for Firenzuola and Castelfiorentino share a red fleur de lis on their coat of arms.

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.
