The tradition of serving leftovers in aluminum swans dates back to the mid-20th century. It became popular in the United States during the 1950s and 1960s when aluminum became a fashionable material for kitchenware. Leftovers were often stored in decorative or ornate containers, and aluminum swans were a stylish choice for this purpose. The swans added an elegant touch to the presentation of leftover food and became a symbol of hospitality and resourcefulness. This practice reflected a cultural emphasis on frugality and the avoidance of food waste during that time period.

For your viewing pleasure KWS has taken select pieces and reworked them in the way we see fit. Sourced all over Ohio, Amsterdam, and Antwerp...these foiled pieces should be considered anything but leftovers. 

All pieces are professionally foiled and machine washable. Turn inside out and place in a garment bag, adjust setting to hand wash and viola!
