Fern Pots

A short post tonight is all I can manage, as we're watching Blue Planet; the beautiful footage is just too enthralling and distracting! In the category of fern-inspired, and an add-on to my Fern Craze post, are these ferny pots. Or, more accurately, these "Salopian Art Pottery" vases. I don't know much about them, except that they date from roughly 1880-1910, and their creation was clearly inspired by the delicate fronds that decorate them.

Those pots were carved by James Arthur Hartshorne, freehand.
