The item in the photo is a jardiniere and is intended to hold planted flowers.
In the early 1950’s Red Wing made vases and jardinieres in several shapes and sizes that were decorated with artwork borrowed from three popular dinnerware patterns. The patterns were Magnolia, Lotus and Blossom Time. The item in the photo is a Blossom Time jardiniere. Red Wing price lists show these vases and jardinieres were categorized as art ware, not dinnerware, and they do not appear in dinnerware brochures.
These vases and jardinieres were not big sellers and were made for a short period. Today they aren’t rare but they are scarce. The value for this Blossom Time jardiniere is $50-75 if it is in excellent, undamaged condition. Any damage reduces the value significantly.

I am uncertain of what it is for. Planter? Can you tell me?
It measures at widest point approx. 9 in. and 6 ½ in tall
