This is a lovely set of blue satin glaze baby shoe planters that are most likely made by Shawnee Pottery Company. They are marked USA on the bottom and are circa 1930s to 1940s. They are button up shoes and measure 2.25 inches high and 4.5 inches long. One is in excellent condition and the other has a very thin hairline crack down the center back.
This is a wonderful old India elephant planter with asian lady sitting on his head. It is in shades of pink and green on creamy white pottery. I found this in a book a while back and it is either, McCoy, Hull or Shawnee, but I can't remember which. It measures 5 inches high and 6 inches long. It does have a repair on the trunk as per the picture, the rest is in very good condition. It is an auction piece so I am not certain of the age, but think it is from the between 1930 and 1940.
This is a really pretty old planter green bamboo and what look like colorful bunting songbirds on it. It is hand painted and and glazed with semi-opaque glazes. It measures 3.75 inches tall and 4.5 inches across. It has some age glaze crazing and water lime build up but no chips and no cracks. I am not sure of the maker but it looks much like McCoy, Hull or even Shawnee.
Adorable brown bear cub and tree stump planter or vase. This piece appears quite old and is unmarked, however, I have seen the same piece listed as American Bisque, McCoy, Shawnee and Royal Copley, so I am not sure of the maker. It measures 5.5 inches tall and 6 inches wide. It has no cracks, but has some rub to the glaze along the back edge and most raised points. Still very cute and would make a great addition to a rustic setting.
This is an vintage 1950s wishing well planter with a pixie or elf dressed all in red. It measures 4.75 inches tall and 3.5 inches across the base. It is in very good condition. Even though the pixie is cold painted red it has very little wear to the paint. This piece looks very much like piece by McCoy and Shawnee but I have no idea of the maker. It is unmarked, but has to be an older piece because of the age glaze crazing. No chips and no cracks.
This cute little scotty dog or Scottish terrier planter is in good condition, no cracks and no chips. It is cold painted and there is some wear to the paint. He measures 5.5 inches tall. This piece is unmarked but it is listed as Shawnee in their book.
This vintage planter or reading glass holder looks to be either McCoy, Shawnee or Hull. But I can't find it anywhere. It has a little wood nymph or sprite lounging among the flowers and leaves. The opening is quite large and looks like it was made as a reading glass holder, but would also work as a planter. It measures 4.5 inches tall and 4.25 inches across. It is in good condition with just a few spots where the glaze didn't cover at the factory, clearly visible in the photo...
This piece is unmarked but said to be by Shawnee Pottery Company in Zanesville, Ohio between 1931 and 1960 when the plant closed. It measures 6 inches tall and and approx. 6.5 inches wide. It is in very good condition, no chips or cracks with just a light age glaze crazing which is typical for pieces of this age. This piece is a very nice heavy pour.
