Hearts of Heart
"Love is a many-splendored thing," novelist Han Suyin famously wrote. Sometimes it's new and bright, and sometimes it's old and tender. These nesting hearts commemorate hearts fitting together comfortably, just like a good couple. The ceramic bowls are made by hand by artist Pastora Munguia, so each one has a slightly varied texture from the others. With the antique look to the finish, these decorative bowls are perfect for Valentine's Day, an anniversary, or even just to warm the new home of a couple starting out. Each set of three hearts nests together, making them perfect as a simple decoration or a vessel for fragrant potpourri. Handmade in Nicaragua.
