What's a Second?

Second Quality Expectations, Shipping Details, and More

What does "Second Quality" mean?

Juliska Factory Outlet is the EXCLUSIVE source for Juliska Second Quality Merchandise. 

Juliska is an artisanal line, so no two items, even first quality, are ever identical. When checked by Quality Control, some goods are rejected for cosmetic reasons. These rejections, if minor, are fully functional "second quality" products that Juliska sells EXCLUSIVELY through our Factory Outlet Store. 

Seconds are items that have a cosmetic defect-seconds are not broken, chipped, cracked, unpolished, or sharp. They serve the same purpose as our first quality merchandise. Please read the descriptions of the items you wish to order.

  • "Second Quality" ceramics will have cosmetic flaws such as minor color/glaze/shape variations, glazed pinholes, or mold marks.

  • "Second Quality" wood/resin products will have cosmetic flaws such as minor color/shape variations, knots that are not perfectly smooth, or small gaps between the resin and wood. 

  • "Second Quality" glassware will have cosmetic flaws such as minor bubbles, slight color/shape or applied decoration variations.

  • "Second Quality" linens will have cosmetic flaws such as minor sizing or color (dye lot) variation.

Care Instructions:

  • Ceramics: Our Portuguese stoneware ceramics are developed in a variety of exquisite transparent, opaque, and metallic glazes on a tough Portuguese stoneware body. Every pattern has the same tough durability to handle the most demanding everyday use.

  • Ceramics Care: Dishwasher (avoid high heat), freezer, microwave and oven safe (up to 500 degrees). We recommend hand washing pieces that contain a non-ceramic component, such as metal, gold or platinum; please note these items are not microwave safe. Avoid cleaners that  contain citrus. While not common, over time, metal trail markings may occur on the stoneware surface due to flatware use. These marks are not scratches, and not due to a manufacturing defect in our ceramics, but steel residue on top of the glaze left by stainless steel flatware. Using a combination of citrus cleansers and high heat in your dishwasher can lead to more prominent metal markings.
  • Glassware: We're delighted to offer mouth-blown or hand pressed glass designs with a focus on versatile style and everyday durability. Each has its own individual character – small bubbles, slight color and size variations will appear. Juliska glass is lead-free.
    Glassware Care: Top-rack dishwasher safe. Not suitable for hot contents, freezer or microwave use.
  • Metalware Serving Pieces: Each piece is handmade and polished to brilliance. Given the artisanal process, no two pieces are alike. Slight variations are expected and celebrated as a sign of authentic craftsmanship.

    Metalware Serving Piece CareNOT dishwasher, oven, or microwave safe. Hand wash with a gentle detergent and dry immediately with a soft cloth. Do not soak or leave unwashed overnight. Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or scouring pads that can scratch and dull metal surfaces.

  • Wood/Marble: NOT dishwasher, oven, or microwave safe. Hand wash with a gentle detergent, do not use steel wool or scouring pads as they will scratch wood; dry immediately with a soft cloth. Do not soak or leave unwashed overnight. Mineral oil can be used to restore richness of the wood color- apply with a soft cloth, let stand one hour and wipe away excess with a gentle detergent, dry immediately. Note:  As with all marble, wine, or strongly colored foods may stain the naturally porous material.
  • Linens: Machine wash linens on a warm cycle; do not use bleach.  Lay flat to dry and iron on reverse.
