This pot is inspired by attached saucer flowerpots made in the Shenandoah valley of Virginia in the mid 19th century. 19th century potters mostly made utilitarian wares for food storage or kitchen use, but "saucered" flowerpots like these were a staple of pottery production in many parts of the U.S.
The pot and saucer are treated with an acrylic sealer to make it water resistant. A drainage hole in the side will allow excess water to be caught in the saucer, but care must still be taken not to overwater if on a surface that could be marred by moisture.
