The polish is striking!
A dangling, flexible, stemmed lavender flower with olive green leaf is set against a gorgeous black and reflective lacquer-like glaze. This Mikasa Tango collection for eight blends a timeless vintage/ contemporary design with dramatic high-gloss elegance. What a gorgeous pair.
NOTE: The color of the flower is a dark lavender pink. It may appear as a brighter pink in our photos due to the lighting used. The five-piece photo (photo number two) is accurate.
