For Sale is a lovely Window Box Planter imported by P.H. Leonard of New York from the Count Thun porcelain factory in Klasterec, Czech Republic. The planter is oblong and measures 4 5/8" tall, 10" long and is 5 1/2" deep.
The Planter displays Daisies in full bloom all around the top that are accented by the Gold gilt rim. The daisies appear to grow out of a field of grass and you can faintly see their delicate stems. There is a waterproof clear glaze on the interior of the piece so it can be put to use. This planter would look lovely with an Ivy or any other plant proudly displayed on your windowsill or for a table centerpiece.
The Planter is bisque with no glaze over the bottom exterior so it has some staining along the outer edges that do not show when the Planter is upright. It has the Ink Stamp that reads "VIENNA AUSTRIA" that is attributed to P.H. Leonard. There is also number 42 over 13 as well as a cross type of mark. There is an impressed "TK" in block letters over this same style of a number 1 in a different area as well. They are not inked so very difficult to photograph these marks.
The Planter is considered to be in Very Good to Excellent Condition as there are no chips, cracks, nicks or dings. There is minimal loss around the top edge gold accents as this planter was previously used. It does not detract from the beauty of this window box however I have priced this piece moderately due to the wear.
The Planter was made Circa 1890-1908.
