Tea and Two Bullets

I found this by Yvonne Lee Chultz via blankbareclean blog and instantly fell in love with the floral porcelain tea set. On a second look the strategically placed porcelain gun suddenly disrupts the whole notion of a quaint afternoon tea party into an afternoon of violence.

The Porcelain Pistols are replicas of James Bond’s Walther PPK and its contemporary sister, the P99,with friendly permission of Carl Walther Inc.The fragile weapon, hand-painted in the style of classic tableware motifs, liesnext to your coffee and cake, asking to be picked up. Its coolness andcomfortable grip increase the qualms of the user, leaving him in a quandary between the pleasure of luxury and violence.
