This week, I have a couple of vintage planters to show you. Of course these vintage planters are nothing other than cute puppies......seeing how I am a dog lover at heart.
How cute is this little guy? I purchased him off of eBay a few years back. He really does not look like any dog we have had in the past, but with his cute little polka dot bow, and smiling face, he was hard to resist. The bottom is marked Reliable Glassware & Potters 1956. The pencil mark price on one of his feet is $2.80. I paid a considerable amount over the foot price!
This next little dog planter is one of my favorites. This little guy is a Boston Terrier Pup. My cousin, Carie has the sweetest little Boston Terrier named Levi. When I found this planter at a flea market, I knew I had to have him. He reminds me of my cousin's cute pup, Levi. He has no markings or stamps on the bottom.
Now, can you guess what's next? I found this adorable little puppy at a flea market in November. The lady whom I purchased this from was a dachshund lover as well and owned 3 of them herself. This little dachshund planter of course represents my two pups. The bonus for me was that this is pink.....pink for my two girls! I am sure if it had been blue, I would have bought it anyway, but I was glad it was pink. I think it is so cute! The bottom is stamped Japan.
Finally, this little pup was purchased off eBay, and I truly thought it was a planter. However, once I received it, I think it was more like a dresser caddy. It has a spot for maybe a wallet in the back, and the little basket in the front that looks like it would hold change. It really does not matter what it is supposed to be used for, it reminds me of my Sophie and I just love it. I have this sitting on the window ledge in my laundry room, and because I spend so much time in that room, I enjoy it often. This little pup always brings a smile.
I hope you enjoyed a look at my vintage puppy planters. They don't hold any plants, but they are great for catching dust! Be sure to link in below on Mr. Linky and show us some of your close to the heart treasures. Have a great week!
