    I traded for these two planters today for part of the labor cleaning up a large garden for an old woman selling her home. She's had them for over 50 years and they were old when she got them from an aunt who had passed away. They are in amazing condition! I recognize a lot of the shells as being from Mexico, and this is the sort of crafts which have been made there for a long time. These planters are quite large and in excellent condition. Each one is about 18 inches wide.
