LISTED ON SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2018 - VIEWED 323 TIMES
A vintage Rubens Original Lady Head Vase #492M ceramic planter from the 1950's.

Single right hand is raised as though in a moment of deep thought.

Black evening dress with a plunging neckline. An accent pin adorns her left shoulder.

She has a stylish derby hat to offset her blonde hair. A day at the Kentucky Derby??

The hat, adorned with a ribbon, coordinates with her dress. The rim of the hat shows some wear due to age.

The lady wears pearl earrings and a matching necklace.

Long lush black eyelashes and her red lipstick set against her fair skin.

See all pictures for part of the description.

Her Original Rubens label is affixed to the base, along with the Rubens original mark and number 492M.

The terms, head vase, 1/2 lady head vase, head planters refer to a style of ceramic vases made popular during the 1950s and generally featuring the head of a person, usually a female.

Originally, florist used these vases to hold bouquets. Their small openings helped to maximize sales by limiting the number of flowers each container held.

Thank you for stopping.
