Handmade French garden planter from Anduze in the yellow finish. Located just outside of Anduze, in the Cévennes mountains of the South of France, this region has been considered the pottery capital of the Cevennes beginning in the 7th century. The Anduze vase was created in 1610 by a local potter named Cévenol. Anduze vases have a characteristic look embellished by garlands and other decorations. Originally destined to serve as planters for orange and lemon trees, they still adorn the gardens of the Palace of Versailles to this day.
