In the manner of true Pique Assiette, the pieces were broken or hand cut to decorate a new Italian terra cotta garden pot. The vintage Shelley "Dainty Blue" pattern (backstamp included) is paired with a Limoges floral and bits of Flow Blue. As the Dainty Blue creamer was too thin to be cut by hand, I literally smashed it, and was amazed when the spout and handle survived intact. Together they create the illusion of a tea pot. Two Pewter Bee Charms decorate the rim and a Vintage Blue Shamrock Glass Button is at the base of the handle. As with all Fit Of Pique pot, the grouting has been treated so that it can be outside without discoloring or mildewing. The pot has a drainage hole. Measures 4"H x 4.5" across the top. I can see this pot beautifully displaying a shamrock plant (oxalis)!
