Politically Correct Tortoise Accessories...

Love the look of tortoise shell but a.) are uncomfortable with just exactly HOW people get tortoise shells, or b.) don't wear glasses or hair barettes, the only two things that seem to be made from real or fake tortoise shell?

Then these tumblers, available through west elm (1330 Chestnut; Nassau Park Pavilion, Princeton), should do the trick. Made from a tortoise-friendly glass, these tumblers add an elegant and exotic touch to your tablescape. Co-ordinate these with wood serving pieces, or juxtapose with white china and table linens. They're the perfect transition pieces for late summer-fall.
