Manufacturer: Mid Century Modern Pottery
Large planter that from style is a mid century modern piece, but we don't know exactly who made this or when. It is marked on the underside base with the style number "896" and then "USA" but we don't know which company made this. Made of pottery or ceramic or clay.

Muted medium green colored planter in largely rectangular shape with a molded curved line design on the exterior on the two longer sides. All sides flare up and out from the smaller rectangular base. Also, as you can see from the top side view, the long sides intentionally curve inward slightly rather than being straight. Both of these give this planter an interesting flared, bowed look.

Greatest measurements are about 10 5/8 inches in length (across the top opening) x 4 1/8 inches wide and stands about 3 3/8 inches tall. This old planter is heavy, weighing just over 2 pounds unpacked.

Could certainly be used as intended for small plants or bulbs, and might be effective for bonsai plants. Could also be used in bathroom or kitchen settings to hold a grouping of bottles or other items as is a current decorating trend.

We've provided 7 images to show from all angles. Please note that the camera lighting causes white "hot spot" reflections on the smooth glazed surfaces. Please use the zoom feature to examine closely.

Very nice vintage condition which shows expected age/wear but not bad. This piece has all-over crazing via fine crazing lines. There are no chips. There is one hairline that starts at the upper rim on a short end and extends into the interior of the old planter. We also see curved hairlines/crack lines in the interior corners (but these do not go through to the underside of this piece, these might have been made in manufacture as some of these are fully under the glazing). There is other evidence of age/wear/use via many tiny dark/brown/spots/dots, some other light spotting & surface wear, etc. There are also made in manufacture flaws such as some interior indented glazed over lines, an interior indented spot near one end rim that is not fully glazed (you can see this in an image), glazed and unglazed white dots, some white dots of raised extra pottery, etc.

Still a fun piece out of an older home that will display well.
