This is a very large canteen gourd, which I was very fortunate to find at a flea market. Oh, the wonderful and variety of items you can find.. To me there is no better shopping in the world. If you are looking for the unusual items, a flea market is the place to go. Some of the items need to be embellished or need a little tender loving care. But with a little effort you may find that you end up with the most cherished items in your home. Have a great day!
