Copenhagen Pot, Glazed
Bergs calls this the Castle Pot since it is inspired by a pot made at the royal castle of Fredensborg in 1860. Over time, production moved to smaller potters in Copenhagen, where it was made until plastic pots began to grow in popularity in the 1960s. Bergs Potter found their inspiration in a beautiful pot found years ago in a former nursery. Today, their potters make the pot in a small village near Lucca in Tuscany.
Each pot includes a drainage hole and matching saucer, which is water-proof. High-fired terracotta is durable and permeable, developing a unique patina over time. These pots are intended for indoor use. This is a handmade product, variation between pots and what is pictured here is normal.
