|My Avatar Kitty aka CraveCute|
I fell in love with this cute little kitty and am very happy to have found her. OK my husband found her, but whatever! Then one day while browsing an Etsy Epsteam (Etsy Pickers and Sellers Team) treasury, I spied the kitten planter below!!

It was love at first sight! I knew I just had to have her!! I went to the shop of The Zoe Bird and immediately snatched up this little cutie!
Notice the resemblance here?

Let me tell you a little bit about where they came from....
They were created at American Bisque Pottery which started business in West Virginia in 1919 and ended production in 1982. Most American Bisque was simply marked with an impressed USA mark, or a mold number and USA mark. Many pieces were unmarked or had paper tags that almost always came off.
Most pieces have unglazed wedged feet on the bottoms. American Bisque is a very heavy pottery. Both of these pieces are underglazed, which simply means the paint was put on under the clear glaze. Some American Bisque items are cold-painted, meaning, the paint is applied after the item was glazed and fired. Cold paint has a tendency to flake or wash off over the years and is just part of the aging process on vintage pottery. The kitty planters are probably from the 1950's.

|So Happy Together!|
I'm so thrilled that I could reunite these two cute vintage kitty planters, they are adorable together!
I hope you enjoyed this look at some cute vintage collectibles today.
