Care Instructions for your Chalkware

Do not wash your chalkware; it’s made of an unglazed material and is not impervious to liquid and moisture. Instead wipe the piece occasionally with a dry, clean, soft cloth.  Do not leave Vaillancourt Chalkware outside or in direct sunlight. Any long term storage should be in a dry location, wrapped in tissue and boxed. Wrapping your chalkware with plastic or bubble may cause damage to the piece’s finish if stored in a warm or humid environment. Please note:

  • As each piece is hand painted, no two will be identical and the photo on the website may differ than what’s received. but each piece is passed by quality control.
  • Do not use soap and water to clean chalkware. Simply dust using a soft dry cloth.
  • Do not use any type of adhesive sticker for identification purposes.
  • Store in cool dry place.
  • Avoid direct contact with moisture or water.
  • If an item is in need of repair, please contact us for a repair form.
