A rare pair of faux bois planters in the form of tree trunks, probably manufactured by Portland Stone Ware in Maine ca 1880 (the company is still in business). These are heavy-duty ceramic pieces designed to withstand the frigid winter climate. Each is in the form of one central trunk with 4 open off-shoots, with acanthus and flowering plant designs alternating at the base between branching sections. Each is 22" high by 24" wide and hollow at the base. Minor chips from wear, otherwise very nice condition.
