Description

Antique Rustic Mediterranean Urn | Hortensia

Our antique natural terracotta Mediterranean urns would originally have been used for storing olive oil and are now the perfect antique home or garden accessory. They commonly adorn the steps and patios of coastal homes. They look beautiful and very sculptural completely empty inside the home but can be used outdoors planted with olive trees or trailing plants.

In the garden, they must be protected from static freezing water/soil if planted.  In the wintertime, if you leave them outdoors, simply turn upside down so that they can not fill with water which will freeze (if you make a drainage hole to the bottom there is no need to do this).

If you establish a plant inside these pots simply use a plastic pot within which will allow for expansion and contraction of frozen soil and water.  If you do fill the pot with the soil we would recommend that you do not allow the pot and contents to freeze over winter.

Each pot is around 70-100 year old so please expect vintage imperfect condition.  None of our pots has any large structural cracks but small chips, tiny holes and dents are part of their inherently unique look.  Some pots have traces of white residue where they have been previously painted.  Pots are often repaired and have some filler.  There are often traces of olive oil inside the pots.

If you see an urn stand in the photographs – they are not included with the pot, merely a way of us creating interest and height for photography purposes.  Please add urn stand to your order if you require one.  An urn stand is not essential, if you add some weight to the bottom of the pot such as gravel then the pot will be largely stable as it will be weighted at the bottom.
