Set Of 4 Rare Large Rectangular Planters by Willy Guhl
This is a very rare planter model designed by Willy Guhl and produced by Eternit of Switzerland. Documented by catalog, they feature steel frames (newly-painted in satin black by us) and lightweight and durable fiber cement panels that have been beautifully weathered over the years. Unfortunately, one planter had only cracked original panels that we could not restore, so we have cut new panels from construction grade cement board (used as underlayment in bathrooms). We expect these panels will also develop a patina over time, but they could be faux-painted to look like the others. Commodious in size and elegant in form, these planters would be magnificent potted up with a profuse display of annuals...perhaps glauda and sweet potato vines or mounded with moss for a Zen look. Price and sold as a set of four.
