Vintage 1970's Red Pottery Chicken Hen Planter -- Heavy Beautiful -- 12” Long For Sale
This beautiful planter was given to me around 1970. It was filled with dried flowers and plastic eggs….I displayed it for several years in my home. It’s a rich red color, with an “antiqued” finish to it…..very attractive.
Nicely detailed features, especially the feathers. Heavy, sound, and solid, weighing a little over 3.25 pounds. The inside is finished with a smooth black glaze…..it’s very clean. This old hen is in excellent condition, with a few small flecks of paint missing. The bottom does have some scratches, which you do not see when displayed. No chips, cracks, or crazing.
The planter measures about 12” long x 8.75” tall (to the top of the comb) x 8” wide at it’s widest.
There are no markings to indicate origin.
She’s a fine old bird, ready to spread her wings and show off for you!!
Please contact me with any questions. Thanks so much for looking!!
