Rather unusual "Trunk" pot

Post  dorothy7774 on Wed Jun 18, 2014 6:39 pm

I just posted this pot on my facebook:

It is 6.5 inches tall and 5 inches wide. Does anyone know what it says or where it is from? Thanks much.







Best,
Dorothy

Hey Dorothy...

I had a similar pot which came from a wholesale importer of Chinese and Vietnamese garden pottery in Atlanta. If I remember correctly mine was only a few dollars. Unfortunately, it totally came apart in its first "mild" winter here in SC. No clue as to what the characters mean?? I would not let it come even close to freezing:)

Thanks for the info, John. I am using it as a chopstick disperser on my dining room table. No chance of under 70 degrees at any time..Wink
Dale mentioned that he refired one like it with good results. May consider doing that.

Best,
Dorothy
