Midcentury Willy Guhl Eternit Handkerchief Planter / Garden Sculpture

About

A midcentury Willy Guhl good-sized sculptural planter. This planter was designed by Swiss neo-functionalist designer Willy Guhl (1915-2004) for Eternit during the 1950s, Switzerland. The planter is constructed of eternite (a durable and light-weight fiber cement), which makes it weather-resistant should you choose to place it outdoors in any climate. This playfully square-shaped planter is reminiscent of a pinched handkerchief, with unfolding corners. The primary color is a stone white with a wonderful patina from use and age throughout and lots of little mossy bits as well. This good-sized Willy Guhl planter, from the mid-20th century, is a wonderful way to introduce some whimsically sculptural elements to your patio or garden. Just add flowers!
