This piece of pottery was made by the Rocky Mountain Pottery Company of Colorado. The company was established in 1952. This bowl planter is sort of an faux wood brown and tan grain. It has a flat glaze outside with a glossy dark green glaze on the inside. It has an apostrophe shape. Shipping weight is 2 pounds. The height of this dish is 2 3/4 inches tall and 8 inches long in some places. It has three ball type feet on the bottom. The mark on the bottom is difficult to read but when you do a rubbing you see "ROMC" clearly and can barely see or feel the "0". It also reads 903 USA as well. This unique piece is definitely a conversation piece for any modern home.
