This is an old figural planter made by the Shawnee Pottery Co. of Ohio. It has a sweet, Oriental girl in a seated position, with a book propped in her lap. The little planter has nice pastel colors, all under glaze. On the bottom it is marked; U.S.A. with the mold number 574. Taped to the bottom is a strip of paper that reads; Hazel Marshall 191955? (1-9-1955) To Wilma. I believe the date is pretty accurate for dating this piece.
It measures about 3 ¼” high to the top of her coolie hat and about 3 ¼” wide across the front and 4” deep, front to back. It is in very good condition with minimal wear and no damage.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
