Martini Glass with Pewter Rhino
This beautiful martini glass has been decorated with a rhino.
The pewter animal is attached around the bottom of the stem so that the rhino is standing on the base of the wine glass.
A truly unique and beautiful piece both visually stunning and practical.
The pewter has been treated so that this glass is dishwasher safe.
The adult black rhinoceros stands at about 1.6meters at the shoulder and weighs approximately 1000kg. Its overall color is dark gray, but like the elephant and white rhino assumes the color of the soil, in which it rolls. A feature that is distinguishes the black rhino from its close relative; the white rhinoceros is a prehensile top lip, which it uses to snip the twigs off the wooded plants on which it browses. Hence its official name, the hook-lipped Rhinoceros. The black rhino carries its shorter head higher than the white rhino. The two pointed horns are made of keratin, a substance similar to that which hair is made of.
