Beautiful Crown of Swans Japanese Ceramic Planter or Centerpiece
Really unusual crown of swans (or possibly geese) framing a planter. The six birds are very elegant with arched necks, and are a snowy creamy white. The planter is in good condition with just minor signs of wear (there is slight discoloration to the base, probably from standing water) and displays beautifully. The piece is large at 9 1/2" diameter, and fairly heavy at just under 2 pounds. While designed as a planter I think this would make a beautiful centerpiece, I filled it with foliage to show how lovely it looks, the size makes it really dramatic. The base of the planter has a raised star which was used on Japanese porcelain, it probably predates 1921 when exports were marked as made in Japan.
