These copper metal sculptures of not-so-delicate flowers really can last forever.
IF YOU WANT YOUR FLOWERS to last and last, consider some 18th-century-style painted tole — French for sheet metal — in the form of delicate copper flowers. These metal sculptures are painstakingly crafted by two Milanese women for Sue Fisher King in San Francisco. Celebrate the season’s fuchsia and pale pink dahlias, African violets and other blossoms in pots or on stands, along with clematis, strawberries, daisies and four-leaf clover. From $285 to $1,950.
These trompe l’oeil confections are reflected in a beveled mirror that has an elegant Urban Archaeology antiqued-brass frame with rounded corners, at The Bath+Beyond in San Francisco. $805.
