Coaster Set

Rose Fitzgerald horn coaster set, ethically sourced as a food by-product, handmade by artisans in Uganda.

$110.00

Made from pure brass and natural Ankole horn, this beautiful set of four coasters, each completely one-of-a-kind, sits perfectly in a mid-century inspired brass holder. The horn was selected by our in-house cow horn artisans, who polished and then sealed each coaster with lacquer for a smooth, shiny finish. The holder was handmade using pure brass; each hand-cut, buffed and polished for a high-shine.

In addition to their impressive size, Ankole horns are also known for their beautiful variation of colors—ranging from light to dark, with exotic stripes of ivory, black, and brown. Similar to a fingerprint, no two horns are exactly alike, making each of these coasters completely unique and rare.

The Ankole horn used was sourced ethically as a food by-product. Each coaster set was crafted from start to finish by our in-house team of cow horn artisans and metalsmiths at our design-and-craft studio in Kampala, Uganda

About the Brand

Rose & Fitzgerald is an art, design, and craft studio based in Kampala, Uganda, founded by a Californian couple who fell in love with the beauty of the indigenous materials and craftspeople they encountered in their adopted home of Africa.  Each piece Rose & Fitzgerald produces is handmade by individual artisans using luxurious materials that have been sourced locally, such an Ankole horn, palm leaf, pure brass, Mugavu and Teak wood, leather, and organic cotton.  While modern machinery, such as a lathe, is utilized for the creation of some products, many pieces are heated and sculpted over an open fire, formed using wood molds, and cut, shaped, chiseled, woven or stitched entirely by hand.  They work with East Africa’s most extraordinary talents in techniques such as carpentry, hand chiseling and carving, sculpting, casting, metal working, hand looming, sewing and weaving—all techniques that have been passed down through generations.
