    BTW the printed reference is from the 2013 Majolica Matters publication.

    Yes I had found that separately. Maybe you can email the majolica association?

    Thanks INH I saw the planter there (pattern like OBBs) is referred as a mignonette, that’s a term I’d never come across before.

    I’ve had a look but it seems they won’t authenticate anything.
    They’ve got some lovely pieces there but no terrariums. You would think they would have something because of the publication. I might try Madalena who specialise here in U.K.

    you need a drain hole in the base when you have a covered/closed top, otherwise the moisture will build up and run down the sides. If you have an open top there is no need for a drain hole:)

    I'm rather fond of both of them. They're a bit battered in places, but I like the natural motifs. Literally peanuts to buy and the seller chased me down to give me the saucer when he found it!

    Really nice pot OBB! You're right, the saucer is entirely different than the initial pot.

    Thinking about terrariums and drain holes makes me wonder if an inner pot/saucer would have held the soil and the drain hole would have been for ventilation (as someone mentioned) and draining overflow.

    Years ago I had a terrarium made from a huge covered glass fishbowl with plants and newts. It was only vented by opening the top a tiny slit. No drain. It was homemade of course, nothing official.
