150,000 to 300,000 flowers are harvested to obtain just 1 kilo of saffron. The pistils are handpicked, flower by flower, with a delicate gesture, just like that of the sculptor composing the bouquet and carpet of saffron on the vases of this collection. An ode to a demanding yet delicate spice trade, the Saffron collection narrates the story of the blossoming flower in the sandy and sunny lands, and the harvesting of the delicate pistils. Like the yellow-gold spice that colors our dishes, the Saffron pieces are tinted in rich, warm hues, evolving from amber to red. Dimensions: 2.6" Height x 4.3" Length x 3.9 Width.Small Saffron Flower is BRAND NEW IN ORIGINAL DAUM BOX. Please check out our other auctions.
