BOHEMIAN GLASSWARE

Our alluring Bohemian glass is mouth blown by master glass blowing artisans in the hills outside Prague. The unique composition of Juliska glass allows it to be blown especially thin, making the glass an unexpected pleasure to drink from and to handle. Being handmade, no two pieces of Juliska are identical. Each has its own individual character – small bubbles, slight color and size variations. Each piece of Juliska Bohemian glass is individually signed, as a guarantee of its authenticity and quality.  Juliska glass is lead-free.

Care: Not suitable for hot contents, freezer or microwave use. Most pieces are residential dishwasher-safe on a warm, gentle cycle with a mild detergent.  Hand wash large, highly decorated or hand painted pieces.

GLASSWARE

Whether hand pressed or mouth-blown our Berry & Thread, Colette and Arabella glass collections are as durable as they are beautiful. Each has its own individual character – small bubbles, slight color and size variations will appear. Juliska glass is lead-free.

Care: Dishwasher safe. Not suitable for hot contents, freezer or microwave use.

STONEWARE CERAMICS

Our Portuguese stoneware ceramics echo the same rich depth of color and artisanal production as Juliska glassware. We have developed a variety of exquisite transparent, opaque, and metallic glazes on a tough Portuguese stoneware body.  All are lead free and each has the same tough durability to handle the most demanding everyday use.

Care: Made in Portugal. Dishwasher, Freezer, Microwave and Oven Safe. Our stoneware can go straight from the freezer into the oven on 500 degrees. Please note that our collections which include a real gold and platinum decal, such as Firenze Medici is recommended for hand washing and not suitable for the microwave. Our hand painted Acanthus Gold collection is safe for dishwasher, oven and freezer, but not suitable for the microwave.

Metal markings on ceramics: While not common, metal trail markings do periodically occur on the stoneware surface over time dependent on your flatware. This is not due to a manufacturing defect in our ceramics.  These marks are not scratches, but steel residue on top of the glaze left by stainless steel flatware.  Should you wish to remove these markings, we recommend a product called “Bar Keepers Friend.”  This product has been tested and proven to be effective.

METAL

Polished, but not precious. The classic understated elegance of hotel silver, re-created in a casual metal that doesn’t’ require polishing to look luminous. Each piece is hand cast of aluminum in Mexico.

Care:  Hand wash only and dry promptly with a microfiber towel to avoid scratching. Avoid using acidic-based cleaners. Not suitable for the dishwasher or microwave use.

WICKER

Our hand woven wicker collection has soft natural cotton handles and sturdy construction, versatile for year round use indoors, or out.

Care: Wipe wicker with a sponge or scrub brush as needed, but do not submerge in water. Spot clean the white cotton handles.

LINENS, PLACEMATS & NAPKIN RINGS

Your table can be transported to the hills of the English countryside or the streets of Paris with our inspired table accessories. Set the scene and the mood with your choice of interesting napkins, placemats and napkin rings.

Care: Machine wash linens on a warm cycle; do not use bleach.  Lay flat to dry and steam iron on reverse. Spot clean placemats as needed.

LIGHTING

Our stunning mouth blown Bohemian glass pendants are skillfully made by our Juliska master glass blowers in the Czech Republic. Lighting is assembly in the United States and is UL approved. Each comes with 6 feet of chain and canopy for easy installation.

Care: Clean by hand with a damp or dry cloth.  Make sure to turn light off first before cleaning.  Using up to a 60 watt bulb is recommended.

FLATWARE

Juliska’s timeless flatware patterns will underpin your joyous fete! All flatware collections feature generous continental sizing and are made of the finest quality available 18/10 Stainless steel.

Care:

Stainless Steel & Stainless Steel with Gold Accents—While dishwasher safe, avoid cleaners that may contain citrus.

Gold Flatware— Please do not use any citrus cleaners, as these are corrosive to gold. For best results, we recommend hand washing and drying with a soft cloth. For dishwasher use, we recommend removing the gold before the hot dry cycle and hand drying with a soft cloth. If not removed before drying cycle, some dishwashers generate little brown spots on the knife blades which are easily removed by rubbing with a dampened soft cloth.

Natural Bamboo— The flatware is 18/10 stainless steel forged with real bamboo wood making for variations in color, texture and size of the handles. To prolong the natural beauty of this collection, we recommend hand-washing.
