Bring home the beach with our array of ceramic vases, sold as a set in shades of the sea. The original inspirations were apothecary bottles from the 1800s, treasures washed up on the shore. Line them up on a shelf, filling each one with a spray of coral, a favorite flower, or send someone a message of love in a bottle. These fabulous vases are made of glazed stoneware and are dishwasher safe.
No seaweed or barnacles cling to these smooth mini vases that might've been 19th-century apothecary bottles tossed into the ocean and tumbled onto sandy shores. Made of stoneware glazed inside and out, all five Beach Bottles feature a different shape, height, and shade of light blue. The smallest is just 4-1/2 inches in height; the tallest, 10-1/2 inches. Ideal for displaying wildflowers (they do hold water) or dried grasses on windowsills, shelves, bedside tables, and dressers, the vases can be placed individually or clustered together for a collector's look. Rosanna received her inspiration for the set from similar bottles she found on the rugged Oregon coast, the beauty of which further inspired her to donate proceeds of all Beach Bottles sales to The Nature Conservancy, one of the world's leading conservation organizations. Best washed by hand, the bottle set comes in a charmingly illustrated round gift box. --Ann Bieri
