Who says plumbing hardware cant be pretty?
Here is the big picture.  Tip:  make sure you clean them good before you slide your napkin through.

Sue, this ones for you.  I know you love to decorate with industrial findings.  These were new but you can find industrial pieces at Habitat Restore, flea market, salvage yards, etc.  These are plumbing pieces but look for extra large nuts, etc. too.  When you tell them what you are using them for, they will think you are truly NUTS!

This is part of my table setting at the Parade of Homes.  It is one of my "shout outs" to the builder.
