A gift from Coppre

Do you feel it?
That vibe
That sparkle
That excitement
That festive spirit
I do
And so does Coppre!
I blogged about Coppre last Diwali, and the lovely team behind Coppre is back on An Indian Summer, with another fabulous giveaway this Diwali. Coppre works with metal craftspeople, bringing dignity, efficiency and a contemporary sensibility to this ancient craft,by linking talented designers to craftspeople. Coppre is supported by INTACH and Forbes Marshall in this intiative.
~ The GiveAway ~
This festive season, Coppre would like to giveaway a beautiful fish platter from their new collection called ‘Vintage Inspirations’. Rashmi Ranade, the founder of Coppre and the designer for this series, draws from the influence of a trunkful of antique brass/copper utensils, puja (worship) accessories brought to India by her friend’s grandmother, from erstwhile Pakistan during partition and other objects of yore.
This fish platter can be yours, this Diwali! All you need to do:
1. Think of a creative name for this lovely platter. And leave the name as a comment right here on facebook
2. Comment on this post too with the name to double your chances
3. Cross your fingers 🙂
4. And the result will be announced on Monday, Oct 28th, with the winning name!

P.S: Yes, I am back after a super holiday with Pugdundee Safaris. Like any self respecting vacationer with a camera, I shall share pictures from my holiday, and my experiences with you, tomorrow. Stay tuned!

  1. Thank you for participating in the Fish Platter naming contest. We loved your entries and we've picked the 'Piscean Platter' christened by Bhumika as the name for the Fish Platter. Congratulations Bhumika!! Do send us your shipping address to coppremarketing@gmail.com. Happy Diwali!

  2. I know, Priya! Totally!

    The Coppre team is traveling after participating in the Dastkar fair in Delhi, and I, well I am just riding high on Diwali festivities :). Yet, this little fish platter demands an owner, and I am going to catch up with Coppre today and find out who the owner is. Check facebook again later in the day today.

    Oh, and Happy Diwali to you, and all the other lovely folks who participated! See you next week!

  3. This is getting ridiculous, no? If you cannot announce a winner 4 days after you said you would (and three days after your Oct. 29 comment on facebook), you probably shouldn't have a contest. Very disappointing 🙁

  4. I posted on facebook, but wanted to mention here that I like The Fish Dish as a name for this cool copper plate.

  5. HMMMM…."TARATI"….MEANS TO SWIM….IN SANSKRIT…RATHER THAN REFERRING IT AS A FISH…OR THE COPPER…..ITS JUST SIMPLE TO CALL IT TARATI…WHICH IS WHAT MAKES THE SHAPE SO INTERESTING AND LIVELY….BECAUSE THAT'S THE ONLY SHAPE YOU SYMBOLIZE IT WITH…WHEN YOU THINK OF A FISH IN WATER…SIMPLE AND MEANINGFUL…

  6. WOW…..ITS SUCH A LOVELY PLATTER…I WOULD JUST LOVE TO CALL THIS "AMBHASIKA"…IT MEANS AN AQUATIC BEING….LIVING IN WATER…..IN SANSKRIT….I THINK ITS PERFECT…CAN'T BE A BETTER NAME TO THIS DISTINCT PLATTER….IT JUST SO LIVELY AND EXUBERANT…FULL OF ENERGY…

  7. Lovely platter…. i would suggest Coppre's "Jalashay" or "Tamra Jalashay". Tamra means copper and Jalashay means fish in sanskrit…. Sajna, Chennai

  8. What an eye catching piece. Back home in Rajasthan, my mother has a huge collection of copper utensils and this will be delightful addition to her collection. I would like to call it ' Molded Meen'.

  9. I would like to name it as "Meenamma". To me it looks as gorgeous and as glamorous as Meenamma i.e. Deepika Padukone in Chennai Express

  10. Since Coppre is all about clean lines and timeless, easy products, I think something simple – but hopefully not too literal – could work: either CoppreFish or CopperFish.

  11. "The Little cuprum Fish". The name comes from The Little Black Fish which is one of the Classics of Persian Literature. The story is told through the voice of an old fish speaking to her 12,000 children and grandchildren. She describes the journey of a small black fish who leaves the safety of the local stream to venture into the world. The word "cuprum" is Latin for Copper. So the "The Little cuprum Fish" says it all!

  13. I came across a fish's name 'catalina goby' – goby of course means 'fish'. But I am changing this and giving the name to this beautiful copper platter as 'coplina goby', a mixture of copper and fish. Aren't we all familiar with the trend to form one name from two couple names.. for eg. Brangelina and Saifeena….so Coplina Goby itis. Howzzzat?

  14. What a lovely giveaway this time, so different from the giveaways before. My name for this beautiful piece displayed here is 'Wrasse'. It means fish with thick lips and strong teeth and powerful jaws, and these attributes apply to the copper platter too, as it has a thick border, strong in quality and a powerful piece..

  16. AYU is the perfect name because it means small fish and I love short simple yet stylish names. And the plate is small simple and stylish too…

  17. I love the word AYU. I feel it is THE name for this nice copper fish. AYU means small fish and I love short simple yet stylish names as is the plate i.e. small simple and stylish

  18. What a gorgeous platter. How about matsymohini? I think it is a fitting tribute to an artifact that I have stared at many a time. I can easily imagine this used in many ways…a mohini it certainly is!!

  19. Ooh what a lovely giveaway…Pesce (italian for fish, and also the root of the sun sign Pisces) is a name that would suit this beautiful copper fish!
