On a Roll (A Lobster Roll!)

John and Jason Oliver are having a real lobster "moment" this summer and have turned to the red-faced crustacean for heaps of inspiration.

Notes John, "Let's see... We have our Rock Lobster made-in-America table linens based upon a lobster pattern that we painted in-house, and lobsters are showing up on Madcap Cottage trays, rugs, plates, and more."

Says Jason Oliver, "John and I love to spend time in Maine every fall, and supping upon lobster rolls is such a favorite part of that experience. Ah, Abel's Lobster on Somes Sound... Lobsters make us think of the perfect American coastal vacation."

Here, a vintage brass lobster that we unearthed at an estate sale that we think would look especially fetching upon a shelf or hall table.

Bring this brass lobster home. Right now.
