A few days ago, I found this POST on vintage planters at Cattails and mentioned my mother had one of these, that it was a seal... Mildred found it on Google and sent me the link. And there it was... Daddy's Christmas gift purchased at the last minute. The Seal horrified me, my mother LOVED it.
Mama and Daddy were soul mates... every gift he bought was the night before and always something like a blue chicken or a green seal..
Mother Truly loved all his gifts.
And now that I look back, I like this little Seal. Mothers name was Lucille and Daddy called her Cille all their years together. He bought it because it was her name. It sat in the kichen window for many years, the plant died, she used it for a pot scraper holder. For 20 years it was Daddy's shaving mug. He put all old soap in it and a big brush like this.
