:: Care & Handling ::
As with any china with metallic embellishment, this should not be used in a microwave, and we strongly recommend hand washing. Where there is surface crazing, avoid staining by restricting contact with acidic or deeply colored liquids & foods (strong coffee, beets, etc). Finally, while it is tempting to stack the pieces, doing so will quickly wear down the glaze on the handles.
PLEASE NOTE: Vintage and antique dinnerware pieces were often decorated with glazes containing varying degrees of lead, a toxic chemical. If you have a concern, please research before purchasing. To minimize exposure to lead when using vintage dinnerware, please observe the following precautions: use infrequently; do not expose to high heat, including microwaves, ovens, and dishwashers; avoid contact with acidic foods & liquids, especially if cracked or crazed (slight crackling of the clear overglaze); do not use to store food or liquids; wash by hand soon after use and allow to air dry.
:: Salem Dinnerware Shapes & Patterns ::
Atomic, futuristic, the epitome of 1930's glamour, the Salem China Company's Streamline & Tricorne dinnerware shapes (created by Don & Viktor Schreckengost, Herbert Smith & Vincent Broomhall) smashed into the well-ordered design world of line and curve with Jetson-like conical cups with sharply angular handles, curvy triangular plates, saucers, and bowls...simply retro fabulous! Salem produced a variety of designs and color patterns for their distinctive atomic & mid century Streamline, Tricorne and Century shapes:
-- SOLIDS like the very popular Mandarin Orange, plus the more rare blue, green & yellow;
-- STREAMLINES of Platinum, Gold, Orange, and Platinum with Orange;
-- IMAGES of Art Deco floral motifs both bold and demure, petit point figures, Moderne polo players atop their horses, sailing ships, card suit symbols…the variety is seemingly endless!
