An unmarked planter with the distinctive characteristics of American Bisque with pastel colors, high gloss, and an impressed USA on the bottom. Can be hung on the wall or just set on a table or window sill. Stands 7-1/2 inches tall in a whimsical representation of a grandfather's clock with main colors of pink and yellow and a pale blue clock face. In excellent condition with no chips or cracks - even a smudge or two of dirt still left in the bottom from its last occupant 40-50 years ago.
American Bisque Pottery began production in 1919 in West Virginia and is well-known for its lamps, planters, vases, novelties, and most of all, cookie jars. Company closed in 1982. There is a mold number under the USA on the bottom, but I was unable to read it clearly, perhaps 1261? Base measures 4-inches across the front (slightly smaller in the back) and 2-3/4 inches deep. Nice collectible.
A few things rare. The usual and unusual. A chance to jog old memories or start new ones.
