Very Large Willy Guhl Elephant Ear Planter
We bought this original Elephant Ear planter, designed by Willy Guhl and hand-molded by Eternit, SA of Switzerland for its amazing surface, even though it has a large loss to one corner. We think this makes it even more interesting in form, but have priced it according to its condition. Beautiful with mounded moss or a profuse arrangement of tall wavy grasses surrounded by dripping sedum, it will make a stunning focal point in your garden or on a large tabletop outside or in. Please note that we have an additional pair of Willy Guhl Elephant Ear planters for sale (Stock # CPL 1093 a, b) should you want three. Made of fiber cement, a lightweight and very durable material, it may remain outside year-round. Please note that this is a true Willy Guhl piece, distinguishable from the very similar ELO design by its two diagonally-opposing down-sloping corners and its two diagonally-opposing flat corners. It is listed in the Willy Guhl/Eternit catalog as an "Oreille d'Elephant" or "Elephant Ear" planters, not a "handkerchief" or "mouchoir" planter, which are very different in form.
