    Here is a very large and heavy-duty tile-like floor planter. It has beautiful glaze, but a few glaze problems and a couple of small chips around the lip. there's an imprinted '5' inside it - upside down, in an older font - 20s/30s? 18" tall x 11" across.

      Hi Ho2, sorry I'm no help on this one but love it! What would be planted in something like this? Something with deep roots?

      thanks AmberRose. many plants can be grown in deep pots like this one. i can imagine two, tall and tightly pruned topiaries in two of these flanking an entrance to some chic apartment building in the 1920s.

      this is not everyday pottery. it's very thick, dense and high-fired - like large tiles made for public places. i think it has a very deco form and partially from the style of the number '5' inside the piece, i guess that this is from the 1920s.
