'Bargain Quality' Canteen Gourds

Please Note: The photos are meant as a general representation of the shapes of gourds you can expect to receive. Because gourds are a natural product, they are not guaranteed to sit flat and may have a round bottom (this is especially common in Tall Body gourds).

'Bargain Quality' Canteen gourds are an excellent choice if you don't mind a few shell imperfections. They may have small cracks, scarring, and other shell blemishes which give character to each gourd. Canteen gourds are known for their thick, dense shells and customers love using them to make bowls, masks, pumpkin decor, and detailed carved art pieces. Come up with your own creation, or get inpsired with some of the art below!

Gourd sizing chart

Shown above, Gourd Sizing Board

 

*Please note: Gourds will be bigger than the size shown on the sizing board because there is a range from one size hole to the next. For example, a gourd that sits on the 9-inch ring and passes through the 10-inch ring on our sizing board is priced as a 9-inch gourd, even though it could be as big as 9.9 inches. Watch our Gourds 101 video to see how we price our gourds. Gourds are sized by their diameter, which is the widest point of the gourd straight across.

Gourds measured in diameter

5” to 6.9” diameter Canteen Gourds

7” to 8.9” diameter Canteen Gourds

9” to 10.9” diameter Canteen Gourds

In the photos above you can see the size ranges available in each of our three boxes which is held by one of our staff members.They are not a representation of the quality and exact shape of the gourds you may receive.

Because gourds are a natural product, these may have a slightly asymmetrical shape, or shell blemishes in an inconspicuous area, but they are still fabulous gourds!

*For Pre-Boxed gourds, refunds are given on the entire box, not individual gourds. Sorry, we cannot refund individual gourds from a Pre-boxed group because the price reduction offered on these boxes (as compared to Custom Order gourds) is based on the group of gourds as a whole.

Please note: Photos are meant to be a general representation of the gourds you will be receiving.
