Cylinda-Line Cocktail Shaker

Apart of Stelton’s Cylinda-Line, this cocktail shaker is a sight for sore eyes, and I’m not talking about the promise of future cocktails. Clean lines, no frills, it’s amazing that something so very simple and sleek is sooo incredibly expensive. Unfortunately, as is often the case, sometimes less is very definitely more.

Magnetic Future Map

This magnetic map uses cylindrical equal area projection which means countries are correct proportionally. Funny how this map looks a little different than the ones hanging in our elementary schools, isn’t it? Each size map features a different color palette; the larger size (shown above) is yellow/green while the smaller size is pink/green.

Stainless steel magnets included.
