Our friend Alayne, proprietor of Layla in Brooklyn, has brought back a collection of vintage enamelware from her most recent trip to India. Indian merchants brought the colorful pieces back from their journeys through Europe and other parts of Asia; upon return they would etch their family names into the pieces and display them as status symbols and keepsakes. Prices range from $10 for soup spoons to $80 for basins; Layla is located at 86 Hoyt Street in Brooklyn.
