These wonderful accessories have a super original design and are equipped with great versatility .

They are created by manually cutting the necks of glass bottles, to obtain unique and at the same time functional shapes .

Our spoons can contain any type of food or sauce , although their size makes them particularly suitable for finger food (mini portions to taste without using cutlery).

You can use them to serve snacks, cured meats, cheeses, olives or anything you can think of to cook for your picnic.

Our spoon mix consists of 3 pieces, available in 3 different color shades : Barbera, Primitivo and Malvasia.

Continuing with the preparation of your picnic, we suggest you add one of our sets of glasses to the mise en place.

What remains of the bottle after the cut from which the spoons are obtained takes the shape of a jug, which will accompany each of the groups of glasses.

You can use them to contain any type of drink : water, wine, beer, sparkling wine, etc... the glass will retain their fragrance.

The varieties of our glass sets are characterized by different colors, deriving from the natural shades of the original glass : transparent, ivory black, bright green or pastel yellow.
