My First Wall Pocket

I happened across an antique store when we were in Upstate New York that was having a sale on a whole case of wall pockets. I have never owned a wall pocket before but I do think they might even be something worth collecting since they are affordable and come in such a great variety of designs. Most of the major pottery firms have their own versions even some of the most expensive and exclusive. The one I actually chose for my first is unmarked so it is not from a famous potter but it is very pretty and I like it very much. Whether it will be the start of a collection remains to be seen but for now, I own one wall pocket.

I know the word 'pocket' but don't understand why the object here is called wall 'pocket'.

It is a vase that goes on the wall and can hold flowers. I am not sure why it is called a wall pocket but that is the real name.

Isn't it basically just a vase?

It is a vase made to hang on the wall, most of them could not stand up on their own.

A wall pocket is basically a vase in a variety of shapes that hangs on the wall and you can put flowers in it.

It hangs on the wall and holds flowers or greens. They were very popular in the past.

Yes, they really are very common and come in an almost endless variety. I guess they were more popular 50 years ago than today.

Since they are called "wall pockets" does that mean that they hang on the wall and have a hole in it to store items?

@BelleStarr They are pretty and I imagine that there are several different flowers to choose from as far as the looks on the outside of the wall pocket.

They hang on the wall, the top is open and you put flower or ferns in them as a decoration.

And think about it, we all have plenty of empty wall space, we don't need a shelf or a case to store them. lol
