Online Vintage Kitchen and Tableware Minus the International Shipping

If you love French vintage kitchenware from 1900-1960 but can't make it to Paris, D.O.T. (Diffusion d'Objets de Table) on rue Saintonge in the Marais has an affordable solution for you. Their online US store includes glass, Limoges, silverware, serving dishes, and a whole section devoted to asparagus accessories. The best part?

Place your order online (in dollars) and pay only for UPS shipping from New York, where they send the stuff first.
