California Porcelain Milk Bottle by Alyssa Ettinger

Author:

Hand-cast from antique half-pint glass milk bottles, Alyssa Ettinger’s porcelain vases are perfect for a bloom or two.  Or they could be used for forcing bulbs.  They come in three sizes, and are from various dairies around the country.  This particular one is from California Milk Company in San Francisco, and is about 6″ tall.  I’m thinking it’d make a great gift on oh-so-many occasions, especially for a new California resident, or for someone (gasp) who’s moving elsewhere.  

Although the porcelain has a delicate look and feel, the bottles are sturdy enough to go into a dishwasher.
