Patricia Perrin Onion Pot


This is, I think, one of the best of Patricia Perrin's Onion Pots. Most have splashes of glaze while this one is completely plain which is one of the reasons that Estelle and I bought it. It is also a very full round shape with excellent detailing. It is not used to hold onions but is used decoratively.

  1. What a great looking pot Bruce. I have a couple of these sorts of pots, but with corks and the glaze splashes. One is a very typical sort, but the other is a white clay with a clear splash on it. Very unusual and quite early circa 1966. We used it for keeping cornflour. I met Pat's two sisters some years ago.

  2. I love the look of unglazed clay and the contrast of the rope is a nice touch.
