As much as we try to keep our sink minimal, this was very practical and had a rough and ready, old-salt type of cool to it.
The bottles are the key. They are thick and a little imperfect.
Although they look like vintage and are printed with the Geyer Freres name, The French beverage company, Lorina (fyi: funny promotional video as site), has long since bought them up and sells their assorted beverages in the bottles.Restoration Hardware, but had no luck there this time, and found much better ones at Katz & Company, but you could probably find these at Broadway Panhandler as well as a number of other places. (Thanks, Jim!)
