Single Enormous Aqua Willy Guhl Saucer Planter
We were fortunate enough to be able to score three of these enormous saucer planters, all in wonderful condition and with beautifully aged patina. Two have sold and only the one with chippy aqua paint remains. Numbered (and so an authenticated Willy Guhl piece), and made of lightweight and durable fiber cement by Eternit who made all of Willy Guhl's designs, we have since power washed the chipping paint off the aqua one. It had a ~6 inch long very thin, but full-thickness, crack extending through the rim into the bowl on the interior and exterior that has now been seamlessly restored. The scale is striking and mounded with moss or a huge display of sedum, it would be fabulous on the terrace of a large contemporary home or next to an entranceway.
