This week I have decided to do a post about the wonders that are 1950s Planters! I can't get enough of them, and there are so many to choose from. Of course, I love the most atomic, crazy ones of all - and have an obsession with 'bullet' planters. These are the planters that comprise of a spun fibreglass, plastic or ceramic 'bowl' that sits in all manner of sputnik-legged frames. Sometimes they are made of other materials, such as aluminium too.
I hate to say it again, but these particular kinds of planters are a rarity here in England. In fact, I've never come across one yet! I always say to myself that if I win the lottery they are one of the first things I am having shipped over!
I confess I do love 50s planters/plant holders in all their forms. I will do another post sometime about plant stands and plant pots, I am sure.
I will start with a few ceramic, figural planters. I really love the variety you can get - tv lamps often had planters included, and once again in the US especially, you could come by a planter in practically any motif you so desired.
First, it is well known that I love anything vintage fish-themed. So this planter is my idea of 'cute', obviously!
And who wouldn't love a spaghetti poodle, that happens to be sporting the most snazzy of cat-eye sunglasses!
Golly - this flamingo planter is what dreams are made of!!
And oh what a crazy pussycat!
I just adore the shape and style of this one:
I would be so happy if I found a planter even slightly as cool as this hanging pagoda styled one someday!
And without a doubt, this is one of the best, like a mini shadowbox feature:
And now, on to the fantastic bullet planters I gushed about earlier...
Well, apologies for the image-heavy post - I just couldn't help myself once I got going! ha ha. I hope you're all having a lovely weekend, are any of you lucky enough to own any fabulous planters like these?
