Capa metal pitcher, Airedelsur ($499). ETC Boutique, 1628 Jefferson Ave., Miami Beach, 305-673-4382

A Posh Pitcher
This handsome pitcher is as full of panache as it will be of holiday cheer. A melodious mix of Art Deco design and Modernist simplicity, the Alpaca silver body is handcrafted in Argentina by the artisans at Airedelsur, who then layered cows’ horn to create a distinctively rich, organic handle that blends beautifully with the clean, restrained lines of the shining industrial core. As much objet d’art as serving piece, it will be as elegant on a bookshelf as it will be filled with eggnog on the most sophisticated holiday dining table. “It is an exquisite pitcher,” says Monica Kalpakian, owner of Miami Beach’s new ETC Boutique. “Some people use it as a vase for flowers, as well.” You can rest easy when gifting this dapper item to a friend or loved one, as it is simple to maintain. Just a swipe with a soft polishing cloth returns the stylish vessel to a high gloss, leaving its owner time for more important and festive chores like lighting candles and stuffing stockings.
