McCOY POTTERY -- HORSE PLANTER (A TOP 100 COLLECTIBLE)

McCOY POTTERY -- HORSE PLANTER (A TOP 100 COLLECTIBLE) for item 1852  
$50.00

NEAT MCCOY HORSE PLANTER! MADE IN THE 1940's, PLANTER IS SHAPED LIKE A LITTLE HORSE (PLANTER PART IS ON BACK SIDE) AND IS IN PRETTY WHITE COLOR. HAS VERY HEAVY GLAZE, IT IS MARKED WITH THE OVERLAPPING NM MARK BUT IT'S DIFFICULT TO SEE BECAUSE OF GLAZE. THIS IS A VERY NICE PLANTER THAT IS LISTED AS #18 OF THE TOP 100 MCCOY COLLECTIBLES. HOWEVER, IT IS NOT WITHOUT PROBLEMS AND HAS BEEN PRICED ACCORDINGLY -- IT HAS A 3/8" X 7/16" SLICE TYPE CHIP ON ONE FRONT FOOT -- SINCE PLANTER IS WHITE, IT DOESN'T JUMP OUT AT YOU. THERE IS A GLAZE CHIP ON RIM OF PLANTER THAT MAY HAVE BEEN RE-GLUED BUT IT LOOKS LIKE IT HAS GLAZE AT TOP SO I THINK IT'S JUST A "BRUISE". THERE IS A SUPER TIGHT HAIRLINE THAT BEGINS AT RIM CORNER OF PLANTER (NEXT TO HORSE) AND EXTENDS 2 1/2" DOWN PLANTER AND AROUND TO HORSE'S FRONT LEG. HAIRLINE IS TIGHT AND DOESN'T GO THROUGH TO INSIDE -- IT'S LIKE A PENCIL MARK. FROM MY DESCRIPTION, PLANTER SOUNDS AWFUL DOESN'T IT? IT'S NOT -- BUT IT'S NOT PERFECT. THIS IS A DIFFICULT TO FIND ITEM IN A DIFFICULT TO FIND COLOR.
