I haven't seen anything like this ceramic planter. From what it seems, it is a red swan with yellow beak and yellow feet. It is hand painted. I would have to say it is rare. On the bottom, as shown in picture, it is stamped "Made in Japan" It is circa 1940's at least. In good vintage condition. There are no chips but there are a few paint spots (I'm not quite sure if they were already made that way or not) and there is crazing on the inside of the planter. If used as planter, it would not be noticed whatsoever.
