Pennsylvania Crimped Rim Paperwhite Pot with Attached Saucer
Please select all options.
This style of a decorative crimped rim is inspired pottery of Chester County, PA, circa 1860. Small flower pots with attached saucers were part of a country potter's seasonal offerings, augmenting their "bread & butter" of utilitarian crocks and jugs. Flower pots of this period were normally made in either salt-glazed stoneware with cobalt blue decoration, or were lead glazed, red earthenware with manganese decoration.
My pot is unglazed white clay or Terra Rosa clay, and the inside of the pot, and the attached saucer are treated with an acrylic sealer, making them as waterproof as possible. However, be careful where you water the pot; if it is overwatered, water will fill the saucer and could damage fine furniture.
