Sometimes, being dramatic is a good thing. Sometimes, its truly wonderful. Let's face it, Comedy and Tragedy have never been better depicted in mid century ceramics than in this striking vintage planter. Representing the full range of emotions, the masked pair survive as a symbol of Aeschylus' theater, the father of tragedy and the first of only three ancient classical Greek playwrights whose works survived into modern times. (With Aeschylus' introduction of theatrical masks, a single actor could portray several characters with increased emotional range.) All humor aside, the purchase of this dramatic ceramic theater mask planter will be no tragedy. Pride and joy are a certainty. Envy is possible. Loving appreciation for a unique example of vintage pottery is the best scene. "By time and age full many things are taught." - Aeschylus 525-456 BC
