Brushed Planter, Robinson Rainsbottom

Question:
Hi! I originally thought this was a brushware Red Wing piece. I tried doing a little research on the internet and found one listed as a "Peter’s and Reed" piece. Could you give me any info you may have on it? Measures approx. 2 5/8 in. tall / approx. 7 3/4 in. across the top. Has a chip on the bottom rim. Thank you!! Troy

Answer: Hi Troy

this isn’t a Red Wing shape, I’m not sure of the maker. Another company might be Robinson Rainsbottom, out of Ohio. They made a lot of items like this one. Wish I could be of more help. thanks, steve n rose
