Some years ago the owner of a local country house came into the workshop bearing the remains of a terracotta pot. It was the last, he explained, of the old lily pots his family had used for generations. The lilies would be grown in the greenhouse and carried inside when they were in bloom, hence the carrying handles on the side. A further feature of the design was the relatively vertical sides of the lily pot which allowed the bulbs to be spaced well apart deep in the pot. We were happy to make him a new set of lily pots to grace his house with the summer scent of lilies and he was happy for us to add the lily pot to our range.
