The planter displays a very pleasing round tapered shape with a flat round foot. There are 4 embossed Elephant Ear leaves surrounding the pot. These are similar to hosta leaves. They are set against a deep matte green glaze that made this Weller line so desirable to collect. The glaze is pretty uniform throughout.
This glaze is very similar to Hampshire's cucumber matte green glaze and I suspect that Weller created the their matt green line to specifically compete with them. The jardinière is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The piece is unsigned but it has that Ohio beige clay bottom. This is also a well documented Weller pattern and glaze.
T here are a few factory grinding nicks in the glaze on the underside edge where it sits. Those of you who decorate in the arts and crafts, mission style will surely welcome this accessory into the home.
It will also enhance any matte green art pottery collection. This would look outstanding with anyone decorating with Stickley or mission arts and crafts furniture. No store lets you out of the building with the merchandise unless it is paid for. Maybe if enough of you do this, they will change their policy.
