    Do you know what these are called?

    Don't know if anyone can answer this question for me or not, but I was wondering if anyone knew the "common" name for the planter/pot in the image below. It is flat on one side (so it can be on its side w/o rolling over) - it looks like a regular vase but one side is flat... My dh bought the one pictured for me at Home Depot last week. I want to find more (different sizes, colors, etc.) - maybe even find a website that sells them or local home supply stores that may have them, but I don't know what they are called.

    I've seen the word tinajones (pronounced Tee - nah - ho - ness) on the internet (or the words tinajas and tinajón) associated with much larger versions of these, but most the info I find is about Camagüey (the "City of Tinajones") where they were originally used to store water, olive oils, etc... - not really where to buy them or what they are commonly called. I've seen them in many pictures for decorating (both outside and inside), but they are always a background item/decoration that isn't named in the article... I saw some them used as decorations around my college (like in the cafe area and such) also...

    Anyway... If anyone knows anything about this style of planter, please let me know. I'm especially looking for a name that they might be called in the stores... noone usually knows what I am talking about when I ask, and it gets frustrating.

    Sorry, I've looked under everything I can think of and I can't find them, either. Good luck!

    LOL

    Why is it such a mystery? You know when you can't think of a name of a song, movie, or someone's name and you can't get the thought out of your head? That is what is happening to me with this "it's a vase/planter with a flat side so it doesn't tip over" thing!

    At least I am not the only one that doesn't know!

    I googled pots/planters/containers etc for about 20 minutes yesterday.
    No luck, but if anyone can think of the name of another item, maybe you could google that word with pots/plants/containers etc.

    The word I am looking for is:
    The cone shaped, fruit/vegetable holder that is typically seen around Thanksgiving. Is it a horn? something like that I think.
    Now this is going to drive me nuts too because I know bothe names, and can't think or either-lol

    Brooke:

    They are very similar to the links below, but the difference is the size. The ones I am talking about are too big and heavy to be place on a wall. They are usually placed in gardens or on the floor b/c of their size.

    Thanks for the links though... they gave me some other ideas for my new screened porch area!

    I saw one today and immediately thought of you! There is a beautiful SW-style home I drive by regularly. They just put in their flower beds for the season and have a huge one of these as part of the display. It looks wonderful!
