"Vintage Thingie Thursday" -- This was a surprise!

My mother-in-law loved this planter. I think she felt like it reminded her of my father-in-law and her. I was never partial to it at all. In fact, if was my least favorite item that belonged to her. When we divided up my husband's parents' belongings when they both passed away, no one wanted this planter.
Even though I had never cared for it, I couldn't let it go into the "throw-away" pile.
It had sat on my mother-in-law's kitchen window sill forever.
I decided to take it.
Two years ago I was looking through an antiques book.
I'm sure you can figure out the rest of the story.
There it was. Valued at $200.
Thanks, Mom!
