White Scotty Dog Planter, Made in Japan, Early 20th Century
This early-mid 1900s doggie planter is typical of the Japanese porcelain imported to the U.S.A. in that time period. This terrier is clear glazed and then cold-painted by hand. The cold paint is partially rubbed out on the back of the collar, but the face paint looks great. The left ear has a nick that is a manufacturer's defect. The piece stands about 5.5 inches tall, and has room in the planter box for a small plant, like an African Violet or petite succulent. It can also be used as a holder for kitchen matches.
This dog comes with a complimentary Saint Martin de Porres medal for good luck for you and your pet.
