Antique Replica Porcelain Milk Bottle Vases by Alyssa Ettinger

alissaettinger_milkbottles

Following the concept of yesterday’s post about vintage style glass milk bottles, I scoured on Etsy these cute porcelain vases from the talented Alyssa Ettinger.

Alyssa likes to fashion her vases with everyday object textures. I showcased her knitwear ceramic vases for Christmas 2007.

Her Milk bottle collection is available as a set or individual vases. She produces them in different bottle sizes. They are dishwasher proof.

She sells them as flower vases but I wish to use them for milk. Alyssa confirmed me be email that all her products are food safe. I am glad that we can use her bottles for drinking liquids. The bottles are dishwasher safe and will show any imperfections, if any, of the antique bottles she used as a mold. I think this fact adds desirable character to her pieces.

These milk bottle vases are only available on etsy. My birthday is in a few months; I will put her Milk bottles on my wish list.

Feb. 26, 2009: I updated my text to reflect the fact that they are food safe.

  1. They are really cute!
    If she tells you they can be used for liquids, adding them a cork lid to store the liquids in the fridge would make them just perfect.

    I am waiting for your cue to maybe order some for myself :-)

    Nathalie: since I received the confirmation that they are safe for food, you can go ahead and order some. I will be jealous :-)
