Original "Bombilla" Argentina with two supports: one made from hand-carved pumpkin, lid with a small decoration of leaves and in the centre a hard stone, metal base with small designs; the other support is a little smaller and is made of metal with a base decorated in what seems to be ceramic, marked Argentina. "Bombilla"’s size is about 20 cm, it functions as a straw/filter to drink the famous infusion "Yerba Matte" traditional drink/herbal beverage famous for its health benefits that is especially popular in South America. The pumpkin cup is about 10 cm high plus lid ring 3 cm high; the other is about 8 cm tall.
These items are used and show some signs of wear but are still in good condition. The only marks I’m able to read on the Bombilla are “Argentina”, “Acero Inoxidable 18 8”.
