A pot pourri was a container with a perforated cover or lid, to hold sweet-smelling herbs or petals, that was intended to produce a pleasant scent. Made mostly in porcelain and occasionally in silver, they were popular in the 19th century. The most prolific maker was Royal Worcester, the factory producing elaborate urns with hand painted decoration by their best artists. Minton, Moorcoft and Wedgwood made smaller quantities. In the late 20th century Stuart Devlin designed and produced several examples.
