Give this personalised money pot to a recently engaged couple who are saving for their all important Wedding day and help them save up some much needed money. These Terramundi money pots are hand thrown in Italy to the same design that has been used for over 2000 years and painted in the studio in London.
The money pots are painted cream and decorated with the words Wedding Fund written in either silver or gold depending on which you choose. The reverse of the money pot is personalised with a special message of your choice which can be up to 3 lines long with a maximum of 10 characters on each line.
Once full the pot will hold about 200 pounds in mixed silver coins which might not buy them their dream car but will certainly help them on the way. To get the money out the top of the pot must be carefully broken off and the pot can then be used as a candle holder or plant pot. Due to the handmade nature of these money pots they may vary in size between 17 and 19 cm.
A brilliant gift idea for a couple celebrating their engagement or as a special gift that could be used to ask that all important question.
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.
