Pair of English Arts and Crafts Terracotta Chimney Pots
This is a great small pair of unusual Arts and Crafts chimney pots, made all the more utilitarian by the fact that they are perfectly sized to accept hanging baskets of cascading flowers from the nursery. We love them on either side of a garden path or flanking a door, but you will find other places for them as well. Because they are hollow, they can be left outside in colder climates, but since they're not heavy, they're easy to bring indoors for extra protection. The pots flare out from the top and the interior top diameter is 8 7/8", so they will accommodate all but the largest flower baskets. Excellent condition, with minor coal dust staining to both that we thinks lends an air of authenticity, but no chips, breaks or repairs.
