German Terracotta Planter
My mom has had this 4.5" tall planter for a few years. I think, it was growing a cactus. Having long admired it, I noticed the pot outside last fall and knowing it wouldn't survive a harsh winter, brought it home. Stamped "Handarbeit" (handmade) "27/12" Circa 1950-60's. While haven't seen a planter, I have found many examples of W. German terracotta vases in this style bit no one seems to know the makers. Very thick and heavy not the cheap quality you find today. It's likely missing the bottom saucer. Maybe still at my mom's?
