Vintage 1960s McCoy Pottery Planter - Green Floraline Pattern Line
I went looking for my dreams outside of myself and discovered, it's not what the world holds for you, it's what you bring to it. Lucy Maud Montgomery
In the 1960's, if you were in the florist trade this petite green planter is exactly the type of vessel that would spark the inspiration for your next bouquet. Although not stamped with the McCoy maker's mark on the bottom, it was made by the famous pottery manufacturer for their Floraline series. Stylishly mod, it features a lazy, loopy design and is washed in a gorgeous shade of green (like a lime rind) and flecked with dark brown speckles. Part of McCoy's #506 pottery mold, it came in a variety of colors including white and yellow in this design too.
No stranger to pottery making, McCoy first began in 1848 in Ohio where it thrived in business for over 130 years. One of the most popular potteries in U.S. history, McCoy pieces are beloved by collectors around the world for their dynamic shapes, beautiful color palettes and quality craftsmanship.
