Moravian Decorated Redware Bean Pot - Small
Moravia is that little sliver of land between Bohemia and the Slovak Republic. Dense and wooded, it’s a region known for sad songs, elaborate embroidery and handsome tilework. This sturdy, two-handled pot pays homage to the potters who emigrated from Moravia to eastern Pennsylvania. Standing nearly a foot tall, the hand-painted borders and fleur-de-lis give it an unexpected grandness.
