This hand thrown and hand painted terracotta money pot is a unique gift that keeps giving! The Money Pot Tradition... Once the first coin is dropped, the money pot must be fed until full. When full the money pot must be smashed while making a wish. It is customary to replace the pot and spend the money on 'good things', they bring good fortune. Money pots are sometimes used to house a candle or a plant once smashed. The best way to break your money pot is to get a chisel or the back of a hammer and place it inside the money slot - slowly lever the top and you should be able to pop the top off - you can now use the money pots to house a plant, sweets or pens. Terramundi money pots are hand thrown in Italy and hand painted in London. Each pot includes a good fortune card and has a good luck coin already in the pot. Comes packaged in a unique gift box. Approximately 7" tall.
