    I don't know anything about this 7" tall Urn Planter that was turned with precision. Salesman sample possibly?
    This is a really fine piece of art and I am surprised to not see a signature on the base.
    I retrieved it from an old house that I am cleaning out that was full of 1920's- 1960's collectables.
    If you want to know if your stuff is dusty, take a photo of it using the flash and post it on here.

      Nice. The shape of a planter, but will require a zink lining to protect it from moisture.

      Lol....dust always finds some little crevice. You won’t be judged by me ‘cause I’ve got my share!

      The zinc lining would be if I used it for a plant right? If I am just using as a shelf sitter it should not need any protection from moisture, should it? I would hate to see it crack.

      Looks like it has a friction polish finish on it that will prevent cracking where the finish is applied. Easy way to tell is look for a dull spot, take a dry soft cotton cloth and rub it briskly using pressure. If that brings the shine back it has a friction polish finish. The heat created by rubbing re activates the polish and restores the shine. I always used friction polish on everything I turned. It makes an even glossy shine and customers love the fact they can restore the shine themselves.

      Thank you all for the comments. I like the information about the friction polish as I did notice that it looked quite different and didn't understand why.
