Countdown to Valentines - part VIII

Gouda Dutch Vase with Graphic Folkart Decoration in Red, Black and Gold (LEO Design)

Let's end our little parade of Valentine's Day gift ideas with this special beauty, a Gouda Dutch vase from the Twenties or Thirties, hand-painted with a bold black, red, white and gold folk art graphic. Reminiscent of embroidery or a Northern European textile pattern, it would make a thoughtful and handsome gift for any Valentine with great taste. Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
