these beautiful vintage Lassi cups are truly unique, with each one individually hand etched. Made from brass and copper very heavy.
They measure approx 20cm tall and opening is approx 10cm wide. I have many to choose from and each one differs from the other some are matt and more vintage looking and some have been polished to look shiner….such an amazing piece of Indian history. I am selling each cup for $45. Will list a few on etsy
otherwise contact me at contactgypsyriver@gmail.com to purchase.

cork….

11:34 pm

Anthropologie is well known for their artistic and innovative displays that often use recycled or reclaimed materials.
For Earth day in NYC, they utilized a highly renewable resource: Cork. Cork is 100% natural, renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. The fashion and home goods chain transformed the stoppers into artwork on display through April. When the displays are broken down, they’ll pass the corks onto Cork ReHarvest where they will be recycled as fishing bobs, brand-new flooring, paper pulp and more. Seriously talented creative team that put this together, well done!!! Inspiring inspiring work….
