Vintage Thingies Thursday -- Animal Planters

For Vintage Thingies Thursday, I wanted to share the rest of my animal planters. In case you missed it, I posted the blue dog one on Monday.

I used to spend hours on eBay searching on vintage dog just to see what would come up. That's how I ended up with these planters.

This is the first one I bought. It was described as a Poodle by the seller, which is why I wanted it, but apparently it's really a lamb. Whatever it is, it's still really cute. It's made by Relpo and numbered 5966 on the bottom. I've seen other 5966's for sale with blue or pink daisies, instead of yellow ones.

This green doggie has C-9591 stamped on it but nothing about the manufacturer or any clue about how old it is.

Dog planter


These are my two favorites. The dog with the hat on the left has a Relpo sticker on the bottom along with "made in Japan." And, SamsonImportCo 1961 and what looks like 5238B are printed on it. The only marking on the planter on the right says it was made in Taiwan.

I love your planters! Sometimes is hard to tell what animal they are. I've seen obvious bears described as 'kitten'. Whatever they are they are cute and very adictive. Thanks for sharing your collection. Twyla
