Does anyone know where I can buy an antique cachepot that would hold 3/4 Orchids?



Ebay would be a suggestion or you spend the next few weekends looking round the antique/second hand shops and car boot sales, Scotsgran. Enjoy!

Bulba I did check ebay but could not see what I wanted.

Guess need to keep looking.

I'm not looking Bulba but Scotkat have you tried googling Antique cachepots. Here is one site which you might want to check out. Reclamation yards might be a possibility. I take it you are looking for one big pot to put three smaller ones into. It might be easier to just stick with three individual cachepots of the same design then you could have the plants together in a group or separate. Are you looking for china, pottery or metal?

Thanks Scotsgran

It's really porcelain I would like.

And yes it's to group orchids together.

It might be worthwhile checking out some of the Antique auctions websites. The kind that are featured on Antiques Roadshow etc. You might be lucky. Also if you just put the word Cachepot into Google, there are a few companies that sell them.
