Wanted: Antique Forcing Pots

3/04/2014

I came across this image this morning over on Old House Gardens’ page about forcing bulbs.   I’ve never seen such wonderful forcing pots and I would love to find something as charming as that hedgehog crocus pot for some late winter fun (but I’d be thrilled to have any of them!).

A quick eBay search turned up absolutely nothing.  Has anyone ever seen something like this?  Know a source? Or perhaps you know someone who is making modern day versions?  Do share – I would be so grateful.

  1. I have an artist attending our Delphinium Festival/Art in the Gardens (July 5 & 6) that makes ceramic vases with leaf cutouts that would work for this purpose.

    Those are marvellous, especially the beehive one! Hm. I wonder if some are lurking in antique shops, mislabelled as hors d’ouvre servers…

  3. Lindsay says:

    I saw these neat ceramic candleholders at Target on another blog. They might work, though they’re sadly not shaped like hedgehogs! http://thriftydecorchick.blogspot.com/2014/02/home-decor-in-gardening-section.html

    Lindsey – those might be perfect for the lily of the valley style planter! Thanks for sending.

    I have a sweet bulb pot in my Etsy Shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/181903445 . Check it out!

    I can not make these pots for you.
    But if I was you I would have a artist make theses for me.
    You would get said artist a whole new(old?)line of art work & she could give/said you the pots.
    I would buy them on line myself, so hurry before someone else offer them.
