There is no maker's mark, cracks or chips. Cute as can be this planter depicts a little boy fishing in a well with sister by his side. The clothing on these children are Lederhosen shorts for the boy and long braids for the girl. I would guess German or Swiss children. Overall size of piece is 5 ½" x 3 ¼" x 6" tall (all approximately). Keep your writing tools handy on your desk with this piece.
