Cornish Pie Crust Rim with Attached Saucer
Please select all options.
Flowerpots with attached saucers were made widely by 19th century potters in the US. They were made as a decorative addition to the potter's usual production of crocks and jugs. Examples can be found in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, New England, Pennsylvania, and right here in Wisconsin. In southwestern Wisconsin, lead and tin were discovered in Mineral Point, attracting new immigrants from Europe, including some from Cornwall in England. The piecrusting on this rim always reminds me of Cornish Pastys, and I love how it gives the pot a simple, yet elegant feel.
This pot has an attached saucer. The inside of the pot, and the 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.
