Maddux of Calif. Parakeet Planter
Ah, plants 'n Parakeets what could be more soothing? And what could be more delightful than this vintage planter from Maddux of California in which the twain shall meet? Imagine (if you will) fine foliage behind these flying fellows, which both enhance and overtake them or should silk or plastic plants be your choice (all the rage in the '60's) then an attached Styrofoam block will come in handy. The frolicking friends are made of ceramic and nicely sized at 10.25" in height, 7+" in length and 4.25" in width. They are hand painted in sunny hues and finished in a shiny glaze. You'll find them to be without chip or crack. There is soiling and mineral deposits in the planter well and the aforementioned styrofoam block, indicating the pot was previously used for both fresh 'n faux plants (see pics). Clean otherwise and marked "Made in USA, 535, Maddux of Calif." on the bottom. One of the more rare Maddux planters and rarer still to find without wing or tail damage. Eclectic and elegant, can't you just see it in YOUR home?
