Gifts From Gumps: Lamont Hand-Hammered Bronze Bowls
Celebrating 150 years in San Francisco next year, Gump's is an institution. Today the Union Square shop offers exclusive collectibles, artwork, antiques, jewelry and a range of tableware, books and furnishings.
It's our honor to offer a selection of holiday gifts from Gump's, hand-selected by our editors, for CH+D and 7x7 readers. We will feature one Gump's gift per day through 12/10.
Hand-made in Thailand by Lamont, these award-winning bronze vessels are cast then hammered before gold leaf is applied to the interior. As delicate as the finest eggshell, these thin metal bowls can be used as votives or simply as a decorative vessels. A great gift for anyone who loves the beauty of old-world craftsmanship. Honored in 2007, the Lamont hammered bowls received an UNESCO Award for preserving traditional craftsmanship in a contemporary form.
