Vicenza Hardware - Mare Collection
Inspired by old-world craftsmanship, each of their solid pewter, Vicenza-designed pieces are handcrafted in the U.S.A. by their master craftsmen for your specific order, and shipped directly from their manufacturing facility in California. You will notice subtle differences in each piece, which is the result of each step of the manufacturing process being performed by hand, using centuries-old techniques combined with modern technology. Choose from hundreds of designs, from the whimsical to the classically elegant. Place your own unique, personal stamp on your home or business. We offer a natural bamboo collection, animal collections, western themes, fruit & vegetable designs, nature collections and many other patterns, designed to meet any taste. Our original designs can be ordered in the finish of your choice, including Antique or Polished Silver, Antique or Polished Gold, Antique Copper, Antique Brass, Oil-Rubbed Bronze, Gunmetal, and Polished, Satin or Antique Nickel. Many of their designs can be ordered in beautiful two-tone finishes, combining our classic antique silver and luxurious polished gold. Choose inlays of onyx, mother-of-pearl, tigers-eye, and many other stones to complement your chosen finish. They also offer inlays of many leather patterns, including cowhide, zebra-stripes, palomino-jag cowhide, and brown and black crocodile. Make your unique hardware statement with Vicenza's cabinet jewelry!
Caring for Your Vicenza Hardware
We recommend simply dusting your Vicenza hardware. You may use a very soft brush to remove dust from designs and crevices, and use a soft micro-fiber cloth to dust the surface gently. You may also clean with a soft damp cloth using a mild dish soap if necessary. Generally, your Vicenza hardware will not require 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.
