If you're looking for a conversation piece that is also practical, French brand OA (Orfevrerie d'Anjou) is now available in Hong Kong. The luxury pewtersmith is known for its custom-made champagne buckets and other accessories.
Used in France for more than three centuries, OA's creations are all produced in the Loire Valley, and combine traditional craftsmanship with the latest industrial tools.
The SOsSO bucket series, above, is a nod to the classic handbag while the SO Flower is inspired by the clean lines of the arum lily. SO High, right, can be transformed from a champagne bucket to a vase or a candleholder, depending on your mood. Prices from HK$6,000.
