ITEM WE LOVE
Historically cachepots (pronounced “cash-poh” no hard T) were used as a way of cycling plants indoors and out throughout the year. Fill the bottom with rocks and place your plastic or terra cotta container with drain holes inside of this lovely ceramic piece for an elegant indoor display, then remove it for outdoor time. Tbh, we’re just gonna use this catch-all cachepot for paintbrushes, pens, and scissors—maybe kitchen tools. Whatever your pleasure, enjoy this piece of historically rich pottery from the legendary antique markets of Jingdezhen, China that boasts a perfect touch of peony. The flower represents wealth and prosperity; we could all use some of that.
