Hand-formed Signed Vintage Pottery Planter with Terrific Sculptural Face

Regular price $75.00

This is signed N-H May 6 on the underside, which has led me nowhere, and which I suppose could stand for New Hampshire, which is not far from where I found it, but I'm not sure. It feels very mid-century to me, with a bit of a Scandinavian feel about the angular, mustachioed face, which is quite skillfully and confidently done, making me think whoever made this was an artist of note. The vessel is thick walled and thus quite heavy, making it great for potting a houseplant—or it could be especially nice to see some flowering bulbs sprouting from this guy’s head! With a really great, substantial presence and a certain gravitas about it.

7 1/4” d x 5 1/2” w x 5 1/4” t and in very good condition.  Some interior staining from use as a planter and a few unglazed spots/glaze chips around the interior lip, which I don't think detract a bit.
