Two Pairs of Small Hourglass "Diabolo" Willy Guhl Planters

About

Designed by the iconic Willy Guhl in the early 1960s, and made of fiber cement by Eternit, SA, these planters sport various shades of old, weathered paint and are in excellent condition (except for one small and barely-visible chip to the rim of the far right planter) Grouped together, they make a stunning statement in a contemporary garden or terrace planted up with sedum or grasses, and punctuated by cascading sweet potato vines around the perimeter. In addition, they can be topped with some of our Willy Guhl bowl planters for a more versatile combination. Priced and sold by the pair.
