**Care Instructions: Great care needs to be taken when cleaning this item as it contains intricate and delicate details. It may be washed by hand, using warm water and a mild liquid detergent applied with a soft, damp cloth. It is best to use a small, soft make up brush instead of a cloth. Do not use abrasive materials or powders for cleaning. Do not submerge the product or get water inside the holes in the base. Dry the larger, open areas with a soft cloth. Allow intricate or delicate details to air dry. Be sure the item is completely dry before returning to display area.
It is perfectly safe to wash your dinnerware in an automatic dishwasher, as long as you adhere to the following guidelines. Load the washer so that pieces do not touch each other, to avoid the risk of scratching. Do not overload. Wash at 149F degrees maximum - the "short wash" or "china and crystal" cycle is sufficient for normal cleaning. As soon as the wash water has drained away, there should be an immediate rinse cycle to flush away deposits of detergent, which will form a film if allowed to dry on the ware.
Dinnerware Durability: Bone and fine china products are very durable and when properly cared for, will last for many years. It is safe to warm your fine bone china and fine china plates and serving dishes in the warming compartment of your oven up to 150`F. Never place china in contact with a direct flame or subject it to extreme temperature change. Pieces with a gold or platinum band or detail are not microwave safe. Fine bone china should not be used for cooking purposes. Fine china is suitable for use in the freezer.
