Handmade artisanal ceramics lend a certain charm to rooms that’s often hard to duplicate with mass-produced equivalents. But there’s one problem — they come with a hefty price tag, making them more than a little out of reach for most people. Luckily H&M Home, my go-to source for all things chic and cheap, just started selling a vase that looks like it stepped out of a ceramist’s studio.

For $34.99, you can get your hands on the perfectly sized Hobnail Vase. It measures over eight inches tall and nine inches wide, and it’s finished with a reactive glaze (which means no two vases are the same, with variations in color and markings on each one). As the name suggests, the vase is decorated with a classic hobnail pattern, which elevates this piece even further.

If you were wondering, a hobnail design is a repeat pattern of raised knobs, giving ceramic or glass pieces lots of texture and detail. The knobs can be large or small, and closely spaced or spread out, but they always form a regular pattern. The design style is timeless and has a whimsical elegance that fits with practically any style of decor.

A stylish vessel and piece of decor in one, this vase will serve as a focal point in any room, with or without flowers. The eye-catching deep-blue hues make this a year-round decorative item, and the color will complement any botanical bunch, should you choose to display one. Best of all, though — no one will ever guess that it didn’t come from an artisanal studio.

For all you plant-lovers out there, here’s some great news: There’s a planter version of this too, coming in at the same modest price. You can only shop these pieces online, which conveniently means you’re just a click away from owning one or both. But hurry, because steals like these often sell out fast!
