Vintage chimney pots have seen a resurgence in the past few decades with a thriving reclamation and architectural salvage market.
People renovating period properties are reintroducing features & fittings that at some time in the past had been removed – fireplaces, cornicing & coving, ceiling roses and dado rails. The traditional chimney pot is one such item, particularly decorative, period examples.
There’s also a practical need as homeowners reinstate real fires and install wood-burning stoves; flues being cleared and chimneys reopened.
Vintage chimney pots are also popular for use in gardens. Upcycled, they make great planters – especially for hanging plants such as ivy & trailing lobelia – and crops like strawberries. They’re also perfect for using as cloches for forcing rhubarb.
We have this fine selection for sale in our upcoming fortnightly sale.
