McCOY POTTERY – BUTTERFLY LINE HANGING BASKET PLANTER
This is a find – a hanging basket planter from McCoy’s butterfly line of the early 1940’s! Although produced as a hanging planter, it is also free-standing. Planter is the pretty “lavender” (pale lilac) color, measures 4 1/8” tall, 6 3/8” diameter, and bottom is marked NM, USA. It is in excellent condition for its age with a few typical production pin-pops/flake-offs – nothing detrimental or worthy of mention. The only “use” evidence is a ¼” glaze ding on rim edge – it is not visible but can be felt – I would not rate this as detrimental in any way. This is a very difficult to find McCoy item and is in a very collectible color.
