Rare Set Of Four Large Terracotta Orchid Pots

 

A rare set of four, late 19th, early 20th century terracotta orchid pots.

The distinctive holes, a Victorian invention, in the sides of these pots are to allow and increase the airflow around the roots of the orchids, mimicking their natural environment and helping them to thrive. I have come across them before at 5" - 7" but never as large as these. Two have cracks ( see last image ) but still ring and are not structurally damaged, the third some delamination to one area. 

English circa 1900

H 10" x W 11" x D 11"
