Beautiful and difficult to find McCoy planters from the Lily Bud line of 1941! There is a pair in this listing one planter is absolutely perfect and one has a production flaw causing a super tight (like a pencil mark) hairline. The flaw: a small piece of pottery at rim edge came loose when removed from the mold and was smoothed back on prior to firing. During the firing process, a stress developed at one end of the flake and it also separated ever so slightly where the flake was smoothed on the rim. Do not be deterred by my description what I have described is production because it has color and glaze. The only possible use evidence is the super tight hairline I described earlier it is on the outside and originates at the smoothed over flake Im undecided if its use or if it occurred during the firing/cooling process. Whatever the cause, these are beautiful items and an excellent addition to any McCoy collection!
