About Seibert & Rice: Testimonials

Terra cotta pots outside at the New York Botanical Garden
"Here at The New York Botanical Garden, we are all in love with Seibert & Rice terracotta pots. Not only are they among the most beautiful pots for plants -- with the lovely soft hues of Italian terracotta setting off the plants -- but they are also remarkably resilient out-of-doors here in the Northeast. We have had our glorious pairs of 4' custom pots come sailing beautifully through two record winters with no damage at all -- winters with single digit temperatures, heavy snow, ice, sleet, and everything in between. How truly luxurious to be able to have such magnificent Italian terracotta out-of-doors year-round in Zone 6 -- thank you Seibert & Rice!"

"In selecting a company to reproduce turn-of-the-century terra cotta urns for Biltmore House, America's largest private home and a National Historical Landmark, we had to find the best reproductions experts in the business. Seibert & Rice's work has surpassed our expectations -- in color, quality and craftsmanship."
