As I used to be watering this week, I spotted I’ve numerous vintage hen planters. The highest one under is from my Grandma Eldred and she or he had an opuntia rising in it on her south kitchen windowsill for so long as I can keep in mind. I inherited it and instantly eliminated the cactus, which I nonetheless have, however I positioned it in a unique container. I really feel that vintage plant pots actually shouldn‘t have vegetation in them, however of course, that’s simply my opinion. Placing dust and water in them actually hinders protecting them in pristine situation. I don’t plan on promoting them, so I suppose it actually doesn’t matter. The little hen from my Grandma was my second hen planter and I’ve been accumulating them since inheriting it. The hanging parrot under was my first vintage hen planter and was my great-grandma Baldwin’s given to me by my mother. I like birds and vegetation, so why not accumulate one thing that mixes each?This little hen planter all the time sat on my grandma’s windowsill in her kitchen with a cactus in it.Grandma’s hen planter

Manufacturers of vintage planters

My grandmas had such nice containers to select from. We now have them additionally, however the colours from the 40s and even earlier are so muted and gentle. McCoy, Shawnee, Royal Copley, Hull, and Purple Wing are simply a number of the names one may discover on the underside of a container and a few don’t have any names in any respect.  I’ve many vintage pots which have the frequent form of a pot and saucer, however by far, my favorites are the planters with a little bit whimsy, birds being my first selection.
