Large Pointed Vasque Planter by Willy Guhl in Modern Stand

About

This very large planter, designed by the iconic Willy Guhl and made by Eternit of Switzerland, is a very rare piece indeed. With its wide-sloping conical form, it is best displayed in a three-legged steel Stand that we have had custom made for it. Featuring a mottled and chipped dark green painted patina on the outside, the planter has a beautiful weathered patina around the edge and is ready to plant with a profuse array of grasses or annuals for a striking focal point in your garden. Please note that there is a new repair to a full-thickness crack that was there when we bought it, but it is now as good as new and the repair is nearly invisible from the outside. There are also some very minor chips to the edge commensurate with age and use. Made of fiber cement, a lightweight and durable material, this planter works well in all climates, but we do suggest you empty it and turn upside down in harsh winter areas. Please note that the planter alone measures 46.75 inches diameter x 15.5 inches high, while the Stand measures 24 inches diameter x 21 inches high. When the two are assembled, the overall height is 29 inches and the diameter is 46.75 inches.
