A New Meaning for Paper Cups
Tiffany and Co. are now selling a set of cups as part of its “Everyday Objects” collection for just $95 per pair. The bone china cups are made to look like paper cups guests might use at a wedding.
Unveiling its new – and overpriced – home collection, the brand has launched a range of characteristically chic accessories that Tiffany describes as “ordinary objects made extraordinary.”
Among the collection is a set of two signature blue ‘paper cups’. They are designed to look like throwaway coffee cups. However, they will set you back a whopping $95 (£72). But, before you gasp in horror they’re actually made from bone china and are completely dishwasher safe – which makes all the difference.

If you’re in the possession of the cash, you could even pick up a $10,000 (£7,634) sterling silver bird’s nest filled with porcelain eggs. Or a $9,000 (£6,871) sterling silver ball of yarn and a set of leather, walnut, and silver ping-pong paddles for $650 ($496).
Christmas Gift Anyone?
The pieces range in price from handmade, mouth-blown crystal glassware at $25 per glass to a $70,000 pair of sterling silver “Art of the Wild” candlesticks. As ridiculous at the over-priced collection might sound, it’s certainly proving a hit among Tiffany fans who are taking to Twitter in droves to express their excitement.
“I need this cup. I’ll take two one for home one for the office!!” one person wrote.
Another added, “Got really excited about the new #TiffanyEveryDay range … up until the point I realised I’d have to spend £565 on a sterling First Aid Box.”
