- Shipping Information
The Doriana Usai 24 karat gold wall plate is handmade and painted with pure gold drops from Sardinia, Italy. This spectacular plate can be hung or used as a decorative table setting and is signed by the artisan.
Doriana Usai guarantees that collectible ceramics and majolicas are made in her laboratory in Sardinia, Italy and inspired by the shapes and decorations of the Asseminese and island Ceramics Tradition and that “Non-toxic and environmentally friendly” raw materials are used.
Each artifact is rigorously fashioned on a lathe and painted with the help of the skilled hands of the artisan.
The small imperfections such as the difference in the glaze in the thickness, the differences in color, shape, diameter or small bubbles that form inside, do not constitute a defect but testify that it is actually an artisanal product.
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.
