Facts & History: The French origin of the word, pronounced as CASH-PO (silent T), means to literally hide a pot — cachepot is French from the verb “cacher”, meaning "to hide." These decorative vessels were originally used in the 19th-century to conceal a less attractive flower pot. Today, cachepots come in a multitude of sizes and designs, and are still primarily used to hold plants; however, they can also be used for storage and decoration!
