I picked up a rattan-wrapped blown-glass pitcher at an import store in Napa about a year ago. I love making iced tea or serving wine in it. It feels so festive and Italian. And it doesn't matter that it has to be hand washed since we don't have a dishwasher anyway.
Smith and Hawken (via Domino) has this carafe set at pretty reasonable prices. Perfect for summer margaritas!
