3 Copper Berry Colander
A big step up from standard colanders, this polished, footed piece is both striking and practical. You can rinse the berries and serve them in this pretty piece. And just because it looks good doesn't mean it's fragile—the copper-coated stainless steel finish is food-safe and resists tarnish.
