I think I paid about $1.75 for this. It is 4 3/4"L, 2 3/4"W, 4 1/4"H. I was at a thrift shop that requires a minimum purchase amount to use a credit card and looked for about 30 minutes to find something I wanted to plump up my expenditure. I went there to buy a specific glass vase that I had been watching, which I grabbed in the first 2 minutes of being in the store. Ugh! I had finally settled on something I didn't really want and found this next to the cash register in a cart full of stuff that had not yet been put on the shelf. Sigh. I have never heard of Prestige (Pottery Co.?) and could find out nothing about them. I suspect that this is a 1953 Japanese import. Guessing the Roman numerals are the year, not a model number, but I could be wrong. This is a pretty small piece, but it has a hole in the bottom with a plastic stopper. Not really sure that it is meant to be used as a planter since it is so small. Just my best guess.
