Vintage Wall Pockets
Vintage Wall Pockets Add Charm to Your Walls
Vintage wall pockets are charming! If you're not familiar with the term "wall pocket," they are basically vases, and are usually made of ceramic. They have a flat back and a hole near the top that allow you to hang them on the wall.
Wall pockets come in all shapes and sizes. I've seen some very fancy ones and just as many that are plain.
The vintage wall pocket shown here is shaped like a tea cup and saucer. The "pocket" portion is shaped like half a tea cup and the saucer frames it.
