Product Care

Tableware / Homegoods
As with any fine china, our product should be delicately cleaned and stored appropriately. Each item is hand-decorated with gold leaf paint and coated with an FDA-compliant* food-safe epoxy.

For both of those treatments, extra care must be taken:

  • Do not serve food or liquid with temperatures at or above 165F. 
  • Do not cut on or prepare raw food on epoxy surfaces.
  • Do not utilize for food service if the coating has been chipped or damaged. 
  • Items are NOT microwave or dishwasher-safe.
  • Hand wash with a soft cloth & mild soap; avoid using any coarse materials.

  • For optimum storage, please do not crowd items. All products are vintage and should be handled with extreme care. We do not recommend stacking our products; however, if necessary, please utilize a plate divider (or even a coffee filter!).  

"FDA-compliant"* means that the product has been evaluated and found to meet the health and safety standards set out by the United States Food and Drug Administration. "FDA-compliant epoxy resin" means that, if prepared according to the label instructions and allowed to fully cure, the product is safe for direct contact with food. In other words, FDA-compliant epoxy resin has been found not to leach harmful components into food that it has been in contact with.


Table Linens / Aprons
Vintage fabrics are extremely delicate and should be carefully cared for.

For cotton aprons and linens:

  • Machine was cold, Gentle cycle.
  • Use mild detergent.
  • No Bleach.
  • Dry on Low settings.

For crochet items/knits:

  • Machine wash separately, preferably in a mesh laundry bag.
  • Cold, Gentle cycle.
  • Use mild detergent.
  • No Bleach.
  • Reshape, lay flat to dry

*Please note that OD prides itself on finding authentic vintage products. As such, each item may have a bit of wear and tear, evidence of a prior history. But who among us doesn't have a few scars? We do our best to repair major damages but encourage you to embrace any flaws from the past. Inspect your order upon receipt and contact us immediately if there are any issues or concerns.
