Why we love this product

Whisper into the gilded flute of this somewhat tipsy vase.

There is something quite bird-like about this lovely little piece, which may be small but is absolutely not lacking in personality. It has a simple shape, with a touch of elegance due to the gilding applied to the upper portion of the vase, contrasting beautifully with the finish on the lower portion.

The Speak vase is a playful, unusual and eye-catching design which we find very pleasing on a side or console table, sitting happily enjoying its own company or as one of a pair.

The vase can be displayed empty since, with the gilding, it is rather beautiful in its own right. We think it also perfectly suited in size and design to displaying a small posy of flowers, or a larger single stem. The off-centre design means that any flowers you choose to display are set at a jaunty angle and this gives added interest. 

What our customers say...

I received my order of candles, some for myself and some for Christmas pressies.

Author has gone to the trouble of beautifully wrapping the ones I had for as gifts, which made giving them to my family such a joy! And I am thoroughly enjoying burning the ones I purchased for myself. I think Tranquil is my favourite and remind me of being in a very luxurious spa! Thank you Author! Can I order some more please?!
