They come from Egypt. And they were designed almost 4,000 years ago.
You can see them at the Louvre’s site – the Tod treasure.
Imagine these hand-made silver bowl and cups in a modern, clean design dining room such as this one. (There are even better examples, but I wasn’t going to spend hours trying to find the perfect one). Couldn’t be more beautiful. The original ones are pretty small, but imagine a set with a few large decorative bowls.
There is something particularly beautiful about the hand-made unevenness of the pieces, what truly makes it unique.
