Willy Guhl for Eternit Large Rectangular Planter with Handles, circa 1968

About

Incredibly gorgeous, this is a rare large rectangular planter with metal handles by Swiss architect Willy Guhl for Eternit, circa 1968, Switzerland. The patina and age on this example is simply beautiful. For interior designers and collectors, you don't want an example that has been scrubbed clean on its patina, it takes years to develop back. This rectangle shaped pot was recently imported from the UK and has such a nice European-climate-patina and coloring developed throughout with one side heavier than the other. Metal handles are heavily patinated. Such artistry and perfect for an interior designer home. Original Guhls like this were made with asbestos, therefore we advise only using outside or in a well-ventilated room. While other dealers don't usually disclose this, we would rather you be safe than sorry. Consider using in an Architectural, Postmodern, Mid-Century Modern, Scandinavian Modern or Danish modern garden or penthouse apartment balcony but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Zen / Minimalism setting. Also consider mixing it up in a traditional, transitional, classical or Art Deco space with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an Apt choice in a commercial project such as an outdoor hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office balcony. Condition: Sturdy and structurally sound. Has beautiful patina throughout from decades of organic aging. Excellent example for a collector or designer. Measurements: H 12" x W 33.5" D x 12".
