In 1859, Vicenza-born lawyer, Antonio Salviati, started his glass work career establishing Salviati & Co. uniting the production of mosaics and enamels with that of blown glass, becoming an example of excellence throughout the world.
The furnace produced extremely sophisticated “lattimi”, intricately woven filigrees, opalescent glass with floral applications. . Salviati was the first modern Italian factory owner to employ skilled glassware blowers from Murano, Italy.

Italian ceramics are heirloom quality products, and can last lifetime with proper care. We have some suggestions that will preserve your majolica for years to come.
Majolica is dishwasher safe, but many people choose to hand wash their pieces as a precaution. Because majolica is a porous material, some pieces are not meant to hold liquid for a long period of time. Check for warning labels before ordering a product, as the pieces that are most notorious for "sweating" are appropriately labeled.
Majolica is sensitive to extreme temperatures, specifically boiling or freezing liquids. Pouring water with a rolling boil directly into a teapot, for example, may lead to breakage. To avoid this, temper the object. The industry standard is 620 degrees Celsius (1,148 degrees Fahrenheit). Quench the glass to cool it.
Crazing is common in well used majolica. The tiny cracks in the glaze do not affect the functionality of your majolica.
Majolica hand-crafted products should not be microwaved, as it may crack and/or break the ceramics.
