For the past twenty years Terramundi has worked very hard to maintain the highest of quality and to bring you the best in contemporary design and we are proud that our money pots are still all hand-made on a wheel by a small family run pottery in Umbria and painted by hand in our studio in London. Our original Etruscan money pots have been traditionally used in Italy for over 2000 years and their hand-thrown design has remained unchanged. Examples can be seen in the British Museum. Once the first coin is dropped the money pot must be fed until full, upon which it must be smashed whilst making a wish. It is customary to replace the pot and to spend the money on good things. Broken pots are sometimes used for plants and candles. Money pots bring good fortune. There is a fortune coin inside each pot and a separate date and desire card to insert when you begin saving.
