Our Terramundi money pots are still hand spun in Italy as they would have been over 2000 years ago and hand painted in London. The hand spun nature of these pots means that no two pots will be exactly the same. It’s a great gift idea for a loving couple who struggle to save their pennies or a couple who are saving for something special.
This money pot is painted cream with the words Mr & Mrs written on the front in gold paint and your personalised message on the reverse. Your personal message can be up to 3 lines in length with a maximum of 10 characters on each line, ideal for a name, date or short personal message.
This Mr and Mrs Terramundi money pot is a great gift idea for a couple celebrating an anniversary, their Wedding day or simply as a gift to help them save for something special.
The money pot will hold about 200 pounds in mixed coins once full but doesn’t need to be thrown away. If you carefully remove the top to spend the saved up money the pot can then be used as a candle holder or even a small money box.
The hand spun nature of these pots means they can vary in size between 17 and 19 cm.
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.
