"I like to have a martini, two at the very most. Three I'm under the table, four I'm under the host."Dorothy Parker
The Story Behind This Tile
Dorothy Parker, a founding member of the literary group 'The Algonquin Round Table' and two time Academy Award nominee, was known as a wise-cracker and lover of gin. Her witty retorts and comebacks are the stuff of legend, and this tile colorfully pays tribute to the playful smart aleck that comes out when the martinis are flowing.
Details & Dimensions

Care & Use
CARE: Enamel artwork is best polished with household glass cleaner and a soft cloth.
DISPLAYING: These delicate yet durable artworks are made to last, resist fading, shine under light, and fire up a meaningful conversation. Spiritiles can stand up on a flat surface or hang on a prized wall. They can stand alone, but love company. Each piece is sized the same to mix and match for a collection that tells your story.
HOW TO HANG: Drywall screws work great! When affixing the screw, leave a ¼" lip to rest the frame's hollow on the screw head. The art will sit securely and flush with the wall. When hanging multiple pieces, the ideal spacing between screws is 7¼" horizontal and 10½" vertical.
