Paula says -

"This sterling silver pot is a miniature version of a traditional pottery vessel that was used to store seeds over winter for planting in the spring. Highly decorated top with hand stamping and 2 coral pieces and two turquoise stones set in shadowbox style."

Seed Pot - Originally seed pots were pottery vessels created to safely store seeds for the following growing season. They were unglazed inside so the seeds could breath. The hole on the top was made small to suit the size of the seeds such as beans and corn. The original pottery version might be 10 inches or more in diameter. Some contemporary artists, in a revival of tradition, are calling attention to the seed pot by making ornate sterling silver miniatures.
