Red Sculptural Hourglass Planters by Willy Guhl, Swiss Modernist, 1960s

About

Willy Guhls planters for Eternit are legendary. Together with the balcony boxes, his "spindle" is one of the most widely used designs of its kind. It comes in different sizes, sometimes with more and sometimes with less patina. And the patina, we think, gives these objects their wonderful character. This set with 3 identical pieces is with 92 cm height the largest execution. It was painted red decades ago and has a beautiful, even and authentic patina.
