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).

These Canteen gourds are some of the nicest gourds we have available! Because of this, we have limited quantities available, and they sell out fast, so grab them while you can! So named for its resemblance to a water canteen, the Welburn Canteen gourd is well known for its extremely thick shell and beautiful, symmetrical shape. They are perfect for artists looking to do detailed carving.

If you're looking for canteen gourds with beautiful shells with no cracks and minimal shell blemishes, then these are the ones for you. Our gourds are known for their lovely, natural markings. These are NOT considered shell blemishes but are part of the natural beauty of the gourd.

For some inspiration, we've provided art work shared with us from our customers 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

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! If you are not completely satisfied, simply return the entire box for a full refund within 30 days!*

*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.
