Hi Jayme, Your violin wall planter/pocket was introduced in 1955. Charles Murphy designed it. The violin is fairly common, worth around $60.00 or so—what makes it interesting is the advertising on the back. Not many art pottery pieces were stamped with advertising, making it very rare lndeed. I have heard of one other. It is difficult to give you a price with it being so unusual. Ebay would most likely be the way to go, and see what it does bring. Nice piece. thanks, steve n rose
