ABOUT SILVERED PORCELAIN
These porcelains are made by the application of different types of overglaze, including silver. Enjoy the spectacle of the colors changing over time, a unique feature of silver
After each use, use mild detergent on a soft sponge to wash your dishes as you would with regular ceramics. Avoid using bleach or aggressive detergents, and do not wash them in the dishwasher. Please also avoid heating them in the microwave or the oven, as this may cause dark discoloration and sparks.
Sulfide reaction causes discoloration in silvered porcelain dishes when they are exposed to air. If darkening is noticeable, polish your dishes with silver polish paste or paste baking soda with water, and a soft cloth, to restore the original shine. For storage, place them in paper or cellophane to avoid exposure to air and prevent discoloration.
If you are concerned about discoloration, you can find some examples below of how to polish these wares. Keep in mind, however, that over-polishing will wear away the silver glaze layer and expose the underlying white porcelain material.
- Knead some baking soda with lukewarm water, apply to a soft cloth, and polish.
- Polish with commercially available cleaners and cloths for silver products (for jewelry and silverware).
