Plane ware planter
This is a relatively newly acquired piece at auction. It is from the Plane ware range produced in the early 1930s and based on existing plain pot designs. To these pots were added wing like handles and attachments. The attachments were often glazed in contrasting colours to produce a striking effect.
This planter is biscuit in colour. It is marked Poole England, stencilled Plane ware and marked with pattern code 209P. The P suffix was added to all Plane ware pieces to distinguish them from their plain counterparts.
Plane ware pieces are rare today and still present a modern, clean look.
