African Martini Glass with Pewter Buffalo
This beautiful martini glass has been decorated with a African buffalo.
The pewter animal is attached around the bottom of the stem so that the pewter buffalo is standing on the base of the martini glass.
A truly unique and beautiful piece both visually stunning and practical.
The pewter has been treated so that this glass is dishwasher safe.
About The African Buffalo
The African, or Cape, buffalo is a member of the so-called "Big Five" group of animals, with the elephant, rhino, lion and leopard. Once popular trophies for hunters, these large and often dangerous animals have continued to capture the imagination. Buffaloes have earned a bad reputation from hunters and other people who come in close contact with them. They are unpredictable and can be dangerous if cornered or wounded. Though they have been known to ambush men and are often accused of deliberate savagery, they are usually placid if left alone.
There is only one species of buffalo in Africa, but two distinct subspecies exist: the large savanna buffalo and the much smaller forest buffalo. The forest subspecies is only found in central and West Africa.
