Gertrude Jekyll Flower Glasses

July 16, 2013 7:00 PM

BY Julie Carlson

Legendary British gardener Gertrude Jekyll designed and commissioned the Munstead line of flower glasses after she failed to find vases that met her exacting standards (she used the vases to display flowers grown in her garden at Munstead Wood, Surrey). Jekyll’s estate recently reintroduced the Munstead Flower Glasses; for a list of stockists, go to Gertrude Jekyll Designs.
