ADORABLE VINTAGE ‘50s / ‘60s SOUTHERN BELLE PLANTER WITH BASKET, PONYTAIL AND PINK DRESS SCATTERED WITH ROSES
A vintage 1950s / 1960s Southern Belle with a garden basket and roses planter that is absolutely adorable!
The Southern Belle has the cutest ponytail with a huge pink rose on the top. She has a pretty face with long eyelashes, a cute little nose and pink lipstick. She is holding a garden basket of pink roses and leaves with one hand wrapped around the basket and the other hand is reaching towards the basket. She has delicate little fingers which are pointed upward. There is a small pink rose on her shoulder with some green leaves. Her dress is in varying shades of pink and white with the full lower skirt adorned with two larges roses and leaves. There is a good size opening in the back to put a live plant, an air plant or an artificial plant. (The plant shown in the planter is not included with the planter.)
She measures 7-1/2" from the bottom of the skirt to the top of her ponytail, 4" wide across the base at the bottom and front to back of the base is 4-5/8". There is a number stamped on the bottom of the planter. I would say the planter is out of ceramic and probably from Japan. Overall very good condition with only a few pin pricks of black on the skirt when manufactured and a few light brown dots on the top back and inside from previous plantings which no one will see, some crazing which I only saw under extremely bright lights when turning the planter side to side.
She would be perfect for a gift for a good friend, a Mother's Day gift, a baby girl's nursery, Sweet 16 gift, use for makeup pencils and cosmetic brushes,a decoration in a room on a shelf as shown in the last photo or just to add to one's collection of vintage vases and head vases.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
