“Hmm, it’s superb, exquisite, exceptional, delicious!” Enraptured by his spaghetti creation, the cook seems oblivious to the total chaos around him – the spattered apron, the egg and peas on the floor ... As a true connoisseur the winetaster has two of his best boxes of wine beside him and the corkscrew in his jacket ready at hand. The corks at his feet testify to the amount of wine tasting he has already done.
Each figure is made from hand-painted polyresin.
The figurines are seamless, so they resemble ceramic yet they are very tough. After drying, the clothes, facial expressions and all the details are manually applied with fine brush strokes.
An eye-catching piece for your desk, sideboard, bar, kitchen island.
