Yes, to some it might resemble a hat but I assure you it's not. It's a food cover--although I suppose if you've had a few too many glasses of wine it might equate to the lampshade on the head of New Year's Eve fame. That said, I think it's rather nifty and quite clever. It's also eco-friendly because it's made of sustainable bamboo. 26 cm high by 41 cm wide. Available in opal (shown here) and red.
