PLEASE SEE ALL MY PHOTOGRAPHS WHICH ALSO FORM PART OF MY ITEM DESCRIPTION
This is a lovely original Glasgow School brass planter - would look great polished up with Christmas Cactii or Ponsetia in it for a lovely seasonal display - and also great with a liner and then planted up with spring or late winter bulbs.
It is one of a small selection of Scottish Celtic or Arts & Crafts items that I am listing from my own personal collection this week - to thin out a little, happy to post internationally.
This planter is a nice large one, oval in shape. It has a wired edge to add strength and durability. It also has two large ring handles at each end - which you could use to carry the planter - but look good as decorative items - they are both secure. The decoration is stylised flowers which run all around - very Art Nouveau / Arts & Crafts in feel - with four Glasgow type flowerheads under the handles section at either end. The base has no holes, although slightly dimpled here an there (nothing major, commensurate with age and not seen when on display) - and has four secure soldered ball feet.
Would benefit from either a good polish up if you wish it more gleaming and a more polished finish - or alternatively it could be finished off with a dark wax or polish to bring out an old patination.
Nice old piece - and with a bit of tlc it will look quite the thing for the display of some of your houseplants - would probably take about three plants in a fairly large size pot!
Dimensions: length 14 1/2 inches. Width or depth is 6 1/2 inch. Height is 5 1/2 inches (6 1/4 including the ball feet). Weight unpacked is just 1kg.
Nice original old piece of Arts & Crafts metalware - listed to be sold as I am doing a wee clearance - so no reserves & a potential bargain. Postage as quoted by UK Royal Mail.
