French Art Deco stoneware gourd vases
The gourd vase was a favourite inspiration for French stoneware pottery studios in the 1920s and ’30s. All the great stoneware pottery studios produced their own versions. They were designed to be decorative and functional for pouring at the table.
Here are four lovely examples, available to buy separately.
