For those of us who regularly tread Hong Kong Island's only road with "star quality", this coaster may look oddly familiar.
It is of course a genuine replica of the very plaque embedded in the manholes of Hollywood Road. The ones that are always missing. Pried loose as a memory, or simply scavenged for the metal itself.
So here's my homage to all those missing plaques. A coaster realised in solid brass, faithful to the original. Produced through lost wax casting and vibration tumbled to produce a softer look.
Note: To preserve the shiny brass finish please wipe down the coaster periodically with linseed or mineral oil, using a microfibre cloth. This will prevent oxidation. Please avoid wiping the cork excessively with oil.
