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.
Now, the fleur de lis decorates knobs and pulls from Vicenza Designs. Handcrafted in Scottsdale,
Arizona, from 100% lead free pewter, this new line is sure to please decorators and homeowners alike.
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.
