Offering a wonderfully cute vintage ceramic cache pot planter or pencil holder.
This hand crafted piece was made in Japan in the early 1950's.
The planter features the most adorable little boy playing the guitar and singing while his white Scottish Terrier dog listens. The small container at the back can hold a plant or some pencils or paper clips. In fact since the boy looks as though he is busking, maybe it is meant for loose coins.
The piece measures almost 6" in height and 4 1/2" across. No chips, cracks or stains and even the paint is still fresh. There is some remnant of glue from an old tag on the back.
There is a small old ink logo stamp on the bottom with the word, Japan.
