The personalised Terramundi money pots make fabulous gifts for anyone celebrating their 50th birthday and they’re sure to enjoy spending the money once they’ve filled the pot up.
Once the money pot has been filled with coins it’s time to break off the top to remove the money which could be around £200 in mixed silver coins. Once the top has been broken off and the money removed the pot is not destined for the bin though as it can be reused as a plant pot or even a candle holder.
The hand thrown nature of these personalised money pots means that no two are exactly the same and they can vary in size slightly between 17cm and 19cm.
Terramundi was established by Dario Illari and Jacquie Ryle over 14 years ago in the upper floor of a flat in Kentish Town, the Studio is now somewhat larger and is located in Tottenham Hale, London.
Our money pots have been traditionally used in Italy for over 2000 years and their hand thrown design has remained unchanged. The British Museum houses examples of these ancient money pots. Tradition
Once the first coin is dropped the money pot must be fed until full upon which time it must be smashed whilst 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. They stand between 17cms and 19cms in height.
Each money pot contains a separate fortune coin. Money pots hold approximately £200 in mixed silver.
