Description: Waiting for your purchase is this lovely mid-century round pink bowl planter. It is made of a high quality clay material and is nicely glazed. It bears an incised number on the bottom #8137 and "C P USA" mark. I have looked and looked, but I cannot find out what the mark is, although I would bet that the "P" is for pottery. There were many, many potteries during the 1940-60's period and I cannot find this particular mark in any of the mark books. If you know, please let me know. I am going to date this planter to the 1950's because of the then First Lady, Mamie Eisenhower, who liked everything pink. The nice thing about this planter is that it is in excellent condition. I don't believe it has ever been used. It would make a terrific planter for small cacti and succulents. Another idea would be to use it on a table as a candy or nut dish. And, a wild idea would be to use it as a water dish for a small dog!! Perfect for the pink-wearing, pampered, poochie. Because of its shape and color, it would fit into any mid-century decor.

Measurement: The planter measures 6 inches across the top opening and stands 3 1/2 inches tall.
Condition: EXCELLENT---no chips or cracks--has some tiny bumps which are small stones in the clay itself--has tiny whitish area inside bowl and on bottom in the same area where the glaze didn't cover it--no stains--a lovely piece of pottery--large whitish areas in the photos are only camera glare
