Lily Bird soy sauce dispenser

A couple of years ago, Alessi, the Italian kitchenware company, and the National Palace Museum (NPM) in Taiwan began a design collaboration that was intended to be a melding of Eastern and Western sensibilities. The result has been a line of fun tabletop and kitchen items grouped under the name OrienTales.

Many of the items are monkey-themed, and there are lots of tropical fish and flowers, but I was quite taken with this little bird-shaped soy sauce container. As with most Alessi stuff (which is "Designer" kitchenware), this cute little bird does not have a cute little price tag. It's $32. But hey, a girl can dream.

If you want to window-shop some more of the OrienTales line, visit the Alessi website.
