Pure Brass & Horn Coasters (Set of 4)
+ $ shipping surcharge
Horns of plenty.
These meticulously hand-crafted coasters are made with ethically sourced Ankole cow horn, long prized for both its hardness and ability to become soft and pliable when heated. Each coaster is cut by hand, sanded, and polished for a smooth and shiny finish that will boost any glass. When they’re off duty, hang them up in their accompanying mid-century inspired brass stand and let ’em show off.

Care & Notes -
Over time, the pure brass will take on a patina that will make the piece uniquely yours. If you prefer to maintain its original sheen, a brass polish may be used. Because the coasters are made of pure horn, which is made up of keratin protein, there are special considerations for their proper care. If necessary, wipe clean with a soft cloth. It is important to avoid leaving your horn items near heat sources or in direct sunlight, as warm temperatures can cause the horn to dry out or change shape.
