~Parthenon~

The Parthenon was built between 447 and 432 B.C. when ancient Greek society was at its peak. It was built at the top of a compound of temples known as the Acropolis in Athens and was dedicated to the Goddess Athena. There was an enormous golden statue of Athena inside which must have inspired endless visitors who were lucky enough to see it. The Parthenon was the largest temple ever built by the ancient Greeks and its ruins still stand today speaking to its incredible construction and its lasting impact.

~Bottle Openers~ 

First debuting in 1892 this handy little invention hasn’t changed much in all that time. When beverages began being bottled with that little crown-shaped bottle cap we all love so much, we were able to store our favorite drinks for much longer and even transport them without spilling. But in order to open those tightly sealed little caps, we needed a handy tool that we could carry with us. The bottle opener with its simple utilitarian purpose soon started showing up in all kinds of different varieties becoming a symbol of one's personal taste and individual story.

~Brass~

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc which has gained popularity because of its bright color and resistance to wear.

 

After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
