Three Small Elephant Ear Planters in the Style of Willy Guhl
Very few people know that the company that produced all of Willy Guhl's designs,Eternit AG of Switzerland, had a French competitor named Élo. Élo changed the Eternit designs just a tad so as to avoid patent issues. These lovelies are the Élo version of the Willy Guhl Elephant Ear planters and can be distinguished by their 4 symmetrical downward sloping corners. Two have a superb patina, loaded with lichen and moss, while the third needs a bit more time outside to weather up. All are in perfect condition and made of fiber cement so durable in all climates. We also have a set of three large Élo Elephant Ear Planters (#CPL 1109) that mix beautifully with the smaller ones. They would make a superb display planted up with sedum, wavy grasses or mounded with moss for a Zen-like display.
