Deep down in the hearts of the artists at Beatriz Ball, these words must resonate as they echo in each masterful detail of the Western Collection. When you hold one of the handcrafted equestrian pieces, you truly experience the dream.
The aptly named “Rugged Chic” Western tableware features traditional and whimsical embellishments mimicking saddle stitches, buckles, branding irons, ropes and even barbed wire. Each eco-friendly, 100 percent recycled aluminum alloy piece is sand-casted and fashioned entirely by hand.
Ideal for serving your Derby party guests with casual, yet luxurious style, the metalware trays and servers are food safe and will not tarnish or lose shine with standard use.
As a Kentuckian, I initially scoffed that a Louisiana-based company could capture the essence of the Kentucky Derby, but Beatrice Ball has managed to embody the spirit with ease and impeccable grace.
From the second I picked up the Western Horse Tray with Saddle Stitched Belt Handles (pictured,) I knew I held a timeless treasure as rich as the equestrian culture it portrays. Featuring a stately steed depicted with a pack of hounds, this is a piece to be showcased at every party, to be passed down from generation to generation and to display prominently in a show case, for it is far too enchanting to be put away!
