Vagabond House is American designed tableware that uses only the highest quality materials. Undoubtedly, this pitcherÆs allure is because of its well-proportioned lines and impressive elk handle. Its statement is one of the prestige and old world refinement. Perhaps the most impressive and difficult piece in our collection, the craftsmen who fabricate this piece get first pick of the finest elk antler from our stock. All Vagabond House antler products are made from authentic naturally shed stag antler. These pieces age well with use, getting richer in color and gaining a smooth texture. However hand washing is required, as horn cannot withstand the intense heat of dishwashers. We also recommend conditioning the handle with Lemon oil occasionally. Vagabond pewter will tarnish very slowly and requires little maintenance. To clean your pewter after use, hand wash in warm water using liquid dish soap. Dry the pewter completely in order to prevent the water droplets from spotting the pewter. If you wish to polish your pewter, most metal polishes can be used. Because pewter is a soft metal, mildly abrasive metal polishing creams can buff out scratches and bring luster back to a frequently used piece.
