Teacup Plant Pots

A new twist on pots, me old china!

Sorry, this product is not available.



Cream with coloured polka dots

Shall we read your tea leaves?

There are countless containers in which to plonk your plants. From wheelbarrows and baskets to pots, tubs and urns. We’ve even seen begonias bursting out of old toilet bowls. But nothing is as charmingly quirky as the Teacup Plant Pot.

As you can see, this giant cup and saucer combo is big enough to accommodate all manner of greenery. Use it to add a stylish edge to your plants, both indoors and outside (assuming it’s not too wintery out there). If making a massive Monty Don out of yourself doesn’t appeal, you can always use it to pretend you’ve got really small hands or really big housemates. The possibilities are truly… erm, limited.

Drinking out of the Tea Cup Plant Pot!

"No it's a... Oh forget it!"

Available in four eye-catching designs; cream with blue polka dots, purple with white polka dots, cream with multicoloured spots or blue and white stripes, this glazed ceramic colossus is guaranteed to attract admiring glances wherever you choose to put it. There is even a hole in the bottom for drainage. It’s delightfully Alice in Wonderland and beats tiresome terracotta any day of the week.

It also makes an ideal pressie for green-fingered tea fans. And assuming you’re reading this from the land of bulldogs, bad teeth and bowler hats, that means you. Indeed as a nation of gardeners, tea drinkers and eccentrics, it’s amazing nobody thought of stuffing their spring bulbs in an oversized teacup yonks ago.

The 3 different designs available

(From L-R) Cream with Multicoloured Spots, Purple with Polka Dots and Blue with Polka Dots

Cream with blue dots Teacup Plant Pot

New: Cream with blue spots

Decidedly unconventional, the Teacup Plant Pot will completely reignite your love for plants – in fact it’s so cutesy you can even leave it on display empty. Just make sure you hide it from caffeine freaks, because the prospect of filling it with a few gallons of hot stuff is irresistible. Fancy a cup of chrysanthemum?

Customer Reviews

Ordered this on the 26th November and it arrived very quickly but there was a crack in it so I contacted firebox and they replied the same day and they sent me a replacement which turned up today and was in perfect condition. Very good customer service and will definitely order from firebox again.

I bought this as a present for my Nan for Christmas, it was lovely but unfortunately there was a crack in it. I rang up and spoke to a lovely lady who was more than helpful and sent out a replacement. Well deserved award for customer service, very impressed and will be shopping with Firebox again soon for all my other gifts I need! Thank you to the lovely lady (sorry I've forgotten her name).

These are fantastic - I have bought this for my Mum for Christmas and I just know she will love it. The quality is really high and it will be a great talking point in her garden amongst all the 'normal' pots. There is however something I have been more impressed with than the product itself and that is the service from firebox. My item arrived with some damage to the box that had occurred in transit and less than an hour after sending an email explaining the item was a gift I received a call from an extremely helpful guy (thanks Henry) at firebox offering his apologies and to send a courier with a replacement the following day (today). He genuinely could not have been any more understanding and really seemed to know his products. The courier arrived at 8. 30am sharp and swapped them over - Brilliant! Would recommend firebox to everyone.
