Decorative and watering porcelain planter figurines made of glazed porcelain except for long bisque unglazed shaft which, inserted into soil, attracts water by capillary forces and keeps soil moist for a couple of days. All three were made before WW I, possibly earlier. (The cachepot is Russian Alexander Popoff porcelain, Moscow , mid 19th century).
Cannot find similar objects online to compare with. Using every possible keyword when searching was in vain. Hopefully, someone might shed some light on this. I have seen bigger figurines made for gardens, but these shown here are short and obviously made for room planters. Thanks for looking and helping with references, links etc.
