Vagabond House is American designed tableware that uses only the highest quality materials. Vagabond House fine pewter serving trays feature handles made of naturally-shed American elk antler, making them one of a kind in the global marketplace. Because pewter has been used for centuries as well as antler, the two elements compliment each other flawlessly on our rustic collection. This serving tray offers a more delicate handle with Italian scrolls leafs which goes well with its porcelain cousin. It can be mixed with fine linens, rich wood tones and crystal stemware making a truly versatile piece. 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.
