Two French Zinc Tulipieres
These lovely and unusual hand-made zinc tulipieres were originally designed to hold tulip blooms. One sports a medium-green painted finish and the other is natural unpainted zinc. Their unusual form and contemporary feel makes them prime candidates for holding delicate branches or dried flowers, conversion into lamps or as novelty candle holders. Please note that while these do not presently hold water, they can be made water-tight with the addition of some candle drippings to the bottom of each arm.
