Of pots & more pots

Have this set of three long pots, with a serated surface and the most interesting finish, occupying a place of pride in my living room. Have been asked by everyone who comes over, including old timers from Cairo, where I've got these from? Most of them can't believe that they are available right here in the middle of the city of Cairo.

Right behind Souq el Fustat is this whole line of potters selling the most amazing pottery including some statues. Saw a wonderful 5 foot long statue of Ramses II, but it was too heavy to cart it all the way home.

So next time you want a little different something to add that "something extra" to your living room, just take a quick drive to this pottery heaven. You'll be spoilt for choice!!
