I create this upcycled smartphone/tablet stand by forging the tines of an extra-large vintage silver plated fork into a useful and unique tripod easel. It's perfect for use on a desk or table, on the carpet or sofa, at home, in the office or while traveling. Viewed from the front angle, the whimsical metalwork design resembles a nose with a &fu manchu& style handlebar mustache.
The silver plated phone/tablet stand will arrive packaged in an attractive jewelry gift pouch, making a convenient, unique and presentable handmade gift.
I forge each individual piece when the customer purchases it. Please note that each phone/tablet stand is unique and handcrafted, so small details of the sculptural tine element will vary from piece to piece. The vintage silverware used also varies from order to order. I rigorously source my flatware to obtain the most beautiful materials at the best possible prices available in a given month or week, so my silverware inventory varies according to market findings.
ORDERING & SHIPPING:
I custom forge the smartphone stands following each purchase. Within 3 days of purchase, I will create your item and deliver it to the US Postal Service for shipping.
