Pots, jars and containers add a decorative touch to interiors or patios; they can also have a practical use such as for wet umbrellas near the front door or storing things like golf balls or knitting wool depending on your particular interest. Some can be used as a striking flower vase for large arrangements. They can also be converted into attractive lamp bases.
A grouping of similar jars makes an interesting feature on a mantle piece or hall table.
All the jars, baskets and containers featured here are for sale so please contact me for pricing.
