On sale! Pan, the pipe-playing satyr of Greek mythology, perches on the edge of this vintage planter or bowl, peering into its depths. This is a Niloak pot from the 1940s, made by Eagle Pottery in Benton, Arkansas. It was one of Niloak designer Joe Alley's "Bright Whimsies" series.

The bowl is a soft blue, almost lavender (hard to capture the exact shade in photos), with a matte glaze. It has scalloped edges. Pan is holding his pipes in his right hand, and you can see the texture of his goat legs and his hoof, as well as the pointy ears.

The bottom is signed Niloak with a low-relief mark, used from 1939 to 1947.

The pot is in excellent condition, with no cracks or chips.

Size: About 6 1/2 inches tall x 6 inches wide (16.5 x 15.2 cm)
