Vintage Thingie Thursday - Vintage Duck Planter


This is a Vintage Duck Planter that use to belong to my Grandmother. I remember when I was a little girl, I would see it at her house. It was given to her by my Aunt Gladys. Then my Grandmother gave it to my Mom. I use to play with it when no one was watching! When my Mom gave it to me, I was so excited. I keep it by my kitchen window.
This thing has to be over 50 years old. It is in perfect shape, no chips or cracks!

I love vintage planters!

Definitely a piece of Royal Copley! There should be 2-3 runners on the bottom. This pottery was made back in the 30-40's in Ohio. I have 100+ different pieces.
Thought that you would like to know!
Hugs,
Cindy

Hello Anne! hanks for visiting Mai Street :-)
I love your planter! My Dad used to work for a place in Southern California that produced things just like that - it must have been almost 50 years ago - it was called Maddox china - look on the bottom of you duck (!) and see if it's imprinted with Maddox..that's be neat!
Anyway, your pups are adorable (we have a ShihTzu as well)
Have a fun day and remember- looking at the food blogs, while almost too much - is not fattening..just don't actually MAKE any of the recipes :-)

I absolutely love your duck planter! It reminds me of my Grandma, who had all kinds of animal planters on her kitchen window sill, and what a green thumb she had! What a treasure you have there!
Happy VTT!

Anne Fannie...I love vintage planters too. What a cute duck planter. It made me recall a large planter my grandmother's brother had. It was a large duck taking flight....I always was fascinated by that planter. It is good that yours has been so well taken care of. Have a great weekend and a Happy VTT!!

I love your planter - I had one just like it with the same plant in it sometime around the 70's - sure wish I still had it!
Cheers!

I love vintage planters as well. Don't have very many of them, but I admire them when I see them. How nice to have those memories of your grandmother.

Mary said...

Annie, I love the duck planter. Mom had one too and it was very similar. She also had a horse. Were they made by Royal Copley or is there any markings on the bottom? I am a lover of vintage.

Blessings,
Mary
