Vintage White Planter, Art Deco, Abingdon Pottery, 462 USA, Bow Vase, Ceramic Collectible, Rectangular Base, Home Decor, Indoor Garden

$130.00 $162.50

The beautiful white to off-white Abingdon Pottery bow-theme planter/vase is in great to excellent condition. The rectangular footed base has the "ABINGDON U.S.A." mark inside a rectangular frame with "462" embossed to its right. According to references, the production of art pottery from Abingdon Pottery began in 1934 and lasted until 1950. Hence, this pottery planter was produced for only a limited time. Even more, the bow-theme design was almost certainly inspired by the popularity of the "bow" during the Art-Deco period of the 1920's to 1930's. In addition to the popularity of the "bow" during the Art-Deco period, the planter has another prominent design feature from that same era. The vertical ribbed-lines in the center of each side of the planter were directly inspired by the Art-Deco period. In fact, vertical ribbed-lines were so prominent during the 1920's to 1930's that everyday culture was inundated with the design. Vertical ribbed-lines were virtually everywhere from modern architecture to normal everyday fixtures such as light switch plates, ceiling light covers, glassware, and kitchen canisters. The inspiration behind the cult-like fascination with vertical ribbed-lines can be boiled down to one word - "Optimism". According to references, straight lines leaping upward were symbolic of the incredible optimism of those living during that era. So, it is highly likely that this bow theme Abingdon Pottery planter with its then very popular vertical ribbed-lines was made in the earlier years of their production.

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, the ChapStick is not included with the listing as it was used for scale purposes only.

There are no breaks, cracks, chips, or repair places on this beautiful bow-theme Abingdon Pottery planter/vase. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the planter - mainly in the form of rub marks on the footed base where it has come in contact with different surfaces. There are a couple of tiny dark spots in the surface that appear to be imperfections in the material. Also, there is a horizontal section on the surface of the end of the rectangular foot that appears to have been shaven off to level the base. In addition, while the planter has been washed with mild soap and water, there are still some areas on the inner corners of the interior that may need wiping down.

The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous white to off-white Abingdon Pottery bow-theme planter/vase are many. The display case or open collectibles shelf would be enhanced by the addition of this early twentieth-century pottery planter. Also, the entryway or living area would welcome this beautiful Abingdon Pottery planter for its incredible Art-Deco charm. In addition, the growing pottery collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this gorgeous Abingdon Pottery planter.

The collector will appreciate this beautiful Abingdon Pottery planter for its great to excellent condition, limited production period, incredible Art-Deco charm, and gorgeous overall appearance.

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:

If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
