You’ve probably heard the story of the painter who was able to perfectly match the colour of a room to a priceless vase by simply painting the vase to match. That’s the basic idea behind this matching Waltz Cup & Saucer set, whose mirror-finished tea cup will match any surface on which it’s placed.
Designed by Japan’s D-Bros brand, each cup is made by hand from Hasami porcelain and coated in palladium to ensure the finish is as absolutely perfect as possible. The resulting effect is a good reason to get a really wild tablecloth for the dining room — although at $US86 for a single cup and saucer set, all your dinner guests might all have to share the same cup.
