Akbar Mashti Flower Vase
Akbar Mashti is a humorous chef that owns a small butcher shop near the north of Iran. He was the only son of a Persian merchant and learned early on the value of a good meal. He likes his tea piping hot, plays backgammon with his wife of eleven years, and doesn't like talking about politics. He considers a good piece of sirloin or filet as beautiful as any poetry and has tiny hands that rest on his chubby belly as he tells fantastical stories about his youth. He laughs with his full self and loves popping pistachios in his mouth while he elaborates on his never ending jokes. Yes, you guessed it: He is always twiddling that mustache of his and considers it his best trait. Tough he will never say that out loud.
He is a perfect round vase to display tulips, poppies, or peonies. Whatever your favorite flower may be, he'll hold them gracefully. These vases take weeks to complete and are one of a kind.
