Forms and Surfaces Bronzed Fiberglass Planter with Optional Pedestal Legs


Forms and surfaces, the premier California architectural design company, is best known for the bronzed "sunburst" entry doors of the 1970s. This planter was a complimentary design that worked in concert with the doors. The finish is a verdigris bronze fiberglass, with thick walls to form a solid planter box. The planter sits on two bronzed fiberglass pedestals, which were a custom option. The planter can be elevated on the legs, or placed on the ground, as shown. The pedestals could actually be used with a glass top as a complimentary coffee table, if desired. The planter box is 22 inches tall without the legs. The three elements are in Fine original condition, and show very well.
