The two conservatory flower pots here figured, are from a German manufactory (that of Edward Saelzer), and must be admitted to be in fine taste; they are orna-mentecl, with wreaths painted in gay colors, and are altogether superior, both in quality of material and in their ornamentation, to most that are imported from abroad. The pattern could be advantageously adopted in a more simple material. We do not despair, when horticultural societies adopt premiums for such things in their schedules, of having manufactured in America patterns that one can bring into a parlor; to this end, good models are needed.
CONSERVATORY FLOWER POTS.
Mr. Bridgeman has placed on our table a new flower pot, which is one of the best things we have seen. It is made of fine clay, is firm and porous, has an ornamental rim, and in all respects is a very neat, durable, and useful article, especially for rooms. The color is a pretty light drab. The price places it within the reach of all who want a tasteful and good article.
