The glaze on this Marston Pottery little black hen has been applied so that each feather is carefully defined by the deeper black in all of the indentations on the body. Her small wattle and comb are red, and her face, beak, and feet are yellow. The base is a smooth green with her yellow-orange feet on each side. This California Pottery Mid Century Black Chicken Planter measures 4-1/2 inches long by 2-1/2 inches wide by 4-1/2 inches tall. The bottom is inscribed with a handwritten "Marston California." Made by Marston circa the 1950s, it is in good condition. Some of the red color is worn away and the inside has the stains of former plants.
