I just couldn't resist buying this set of 20 vintage zinc flowerpot holders in Germany, although I knew I couldn't possibly use them all. I don't know exactly how old they are, although they do have some "age" to them, with minor imperfections. The open weave design is so pretty. There are holes at the bottom for drainage. So I've decided to keep what I want (7 pieces) and sell the rest here on Living Tastefully for those that might like them and have a use for them. They measure approximately 4 3/4 inches tall and 6 1/4 inches in diameter at the top. First come; first serve. Just send me an e-mail indicating your interest and I'll reply privately. $11.95/each, plus postage.
I used one for an orchid plant in my bathroom and lined the metal holder with "reindeer moss" (Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores has a nice selection of different types of moss) . . .
. . . and another for a small pot of tulips which are so plentiful in the stores this time of year. I did keep both the orchid and tulips in their own little plastic pots before setting them in the outer metal holder.
