Claret Fiestaware Box with Drain Hole


Claret Fiestaware box with hand-cut 1/2″ drain hole began as a covered trinket box, but is now the perfect home for a medium sized succulent, petite fern, or collection of small cacti. This substantial piece of pottery is approximately 2 1/2″ tall, 4 1/2″ wide at the rim, and about 2 1/2″ wide at the base. It’s big enough for a dish garden of mini succulents but looks particularly fantastic filled with a bright green fern or small trailing plant like Baby’s Tears.

Although seconds, the Fiestaware boxes I’ve sourced look pristine with even glaze and no obvious flaws. Perfect for gifting. Note, also, that claret is a hard-to-find retired color.

Claret Fiestaware box with a hand-cut 1/2" drain hole began as a covered trinket box, but lost its lid and is now the perfect home for a medium-sized succulent, a small fern, or a mini dish garden. This substantial pottery piece is approximately 2 1/2" tall, 4 1/2" wide at the rim, and about 2 1/2" wide at the base. It's finished with a retired maroon glaze known in the Fiesta world as "claret". Big enough and deep enough for a medium succulent, this pot also looks fantastic filled with a bright green fern.

Your merlot Fiestaware box will be deep maroon and nicely shaped, but the pieces I sell are factory seconds, so you should expect some variation in glazing or small flaws, such as tiny bumps, in the the surface of the pottery. Glazing variations might include inconsistent coverage with some areas, such as a rim, appearing lighter than the rest of the piece. I choose the best I can find, however, and many pieces have no discernable defect. A perfect pieces might be overstock or glazed in a retired color. All the pottery I sell is authentic Fiestaware and, as such, is bright, fun, heavy, and made to last for generations. All this being said, however, the trinket boxes I've sourced all look pristine; they're just missing their lids.
