Decorated Terracotta Pots

A selection of ornate pots, planters, vases and urns.

Originally terracotta pots and urns were functional items and lacked decoration. The pots were used predominantly for nursery planting or plant transportation and the urns to store oils, wine, and fruits such as olives. As terracotta became used more in a garden setting, the artisan potteries began adding decoration, either a generic fruit and leaf swag with a boss, their own pottery design or a bespoke piece with family emblems.

Today our range of decorated terracotta pots offers plenty of choices, from simple foglie (leaf) bands on the pot shoulder to the highly ornate Conca Duchessa skillfully produced by the Master Potter. A mix of plain and decorated planters can make for stunning displays, especially as the terracotta ages.
