The Alessi Dear Charlie Banana Holder was designed by John Truex to emulate the appearance of a small branch. The branch for hanging bananas keeps the bananas away from the ripening gases of the other fruits, appropriately keeping them preserved. Also useful for hanging grapes, chilis, or perhaps garlic. Made of chrome-plated zamak (a zinc, aluminum and copper alloy), the Dear Charlie Banana Holder has a rubber covered base that, together with its weight, guarantees stability. Dear Charlie can also make a gorgeous jewelry stand for rings, bracelets, and earrings. Dimensions: 6.5" w x 3.75" d x 11" h.
