The Danish pottery dates back to 1942 when Victor Berg inherited a ceramics shop in Copenhagen. In an effort to bring happiness to the Dutch people during the uncertain times of World War II, Berg began selling fresh flowers to accompany the clay pots and the unique mix of bright flowers and aged pots became an instant hit among locals.
If your plants could speak, they would tell you that there’s nothing better than a quality clay pot. Proper drainage gives their roots room to breathe, and superior clay holds in the moisture they need.
After 75 years, Bergs Potter’s wares are still created with love in Tuscany. The clay is fired at very high temperatures, giving the pots a natural strength and a special treatment ensures that our saucers are completely waterproof, making our pots suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. The high density of the clay, makes the pots frost resistant and allows air to the roots and retain moisture due to the superlative quality of the clay, thus giving plants the optimum growth conditions.
