“Come up and see my etchings” is a saucy little euphemism but we guarantee you won’t get a slap if you say it in style.
These etched glass love tokens by Vinegar and Brown Paper, aka fabulous Yorkshire designer Andy Poplar, are a great Valentine gift.
Our favourite (hint, hint!) is the vintage optician lens, £12.50, though we wouldn’t say no to the Love Potion bottle, £24.95, or the ink bottle, £39.95.
Andy’s other designs include mirrors, cafetieres, pint glasses and milk bottles and they’re all etched with fun or evocative phrases.
You can find his work at The Imaginarium, Blake Street, York; The Heart Gallery , Market Street, Hebden Bridge, and Lime Lace, Princes Square, Harrogate, or order from www.vinegarandbrownpaper.co.uk
