This is really a neat item...not only just to use as a planter but, can be used as a decorative accent piece also. Looks realistic for the most part.
Great cross collectible for pottery and telephone collectors. OR....just a nice piece of pottery to add to your home or office decor!
This was one of my first purchases on Ebay 8 years ago. It was sold as a Red Wing Pottery item. I have yet to find it in any Red Wing books.
Regardless, I still liked the telephone but, never have been able to come accross the maker. It is numbered 633 impressed on the bottom. Possibly, from a California pottery.
Painted pink with a very heavy high gloss glaze over the color. The ear piece was also prepainted black and glazed over. Unfortunately, black cold paint was used for the mouth piece. (As with cold paint it eventually wears off.) I have found this can be redone with Industrial Polyurethane Enamel Paint. Supposedly, what crafters use on ceramics.
Original heavy gold cord attached to the ear piece and phone. The phone hook is metal.
The pink color is a little darker then my photos...I will try to add a few more pictures.
No chips, cracks or repairs. There is some crazing inside the planter. If there is any other crazing it is very difficult to find.
Measures: App. H = 11" - Base - 6.5" - Phone ear piece is 4.25"
