Apple Green Glazed Thumb Pot Waterer

  • Terracotta pots with sprinkling holes in the base were used both indoors and outdoors from late medieval times until the 1700s.
  • Simply immerse the thumb pot in water, place your thumb over the hole to retain the liquid, then release your thumb to control sprinkling through its base as & where required.
  • The same kind of watering pot, or sprinkling pot, was used in medieval and Renaissance gardens. They would be easy to fill from a pond or trough or pail.
  • Nowadays, these waterers have had their own 'renaissance' with gardeners as being a gentle way of watering young seedlings in the greenhouse.
  • Hand-made in our Nottinghamshire pottery.
