The pot refers to the flowerpots first made in Renaissance Tuscany. In the 1440`s the architects of the time had the idea of putting Citrus trees in very large pots all around the gardens. The best artists of the day , including Lucca della Robbia were employed to design these pots.
The Whichford design is closely allied to these originals.
