Peanuts (Snoopy) Ceramic Flower Pot Value? (Vanity)
Moi ^ | 7-10-08 | Self

Posted on 07/10/2008 7:13:09 AM PDT by visualops

I've been given a ceramic flowerpot by my boss, and she says it was her mother's and may be worth something. It is ceramic with a relief of snoopy and a sunflower. Bottom printing list copyright as 1958 but I doubt the pot is that old. Unfortunately I think this is the only one she didn't throw away. Anyway I have googled alot and cannot find it anywhere to try and ascertain it's rarity or value. Any FReepers know anything about this type of thing?

I am at work so will only be able to check this thread sporadically (if anyone replies LOL) until I get home. Any info at all will be appreciated!

If this is your boss’ idea of a bonus, maybe you should get your resume up to date.

It’s likely from the 60’s and could sell for $5-$15 in an “antique” store.

A tough sell because Peanuts collectibles are very plentiful, and glass/pottery people are more refined in their tastes.

Aside from the Peanuts bobble heads, not many things from that era have big resale value.

$10-20, unless its hand signed by schulz, and never been used as an actual pot.

No, she gave it to me with flowers from her garden. And as an example of what kind of people my bosses’ are, we just printed t-shirts for my son’s flight (C-Flight, 355th SFS) for free just as a favor to me and to support the troops.

You need to work on your internet search skills :-)

Here's a link to a current eBay listing for this item, offered as "Buy it Now" for $12.75 (relisted after being offered for auction at minimum bid $7.75): SnoopyPot

"This adorable Snoopy vase or planter is in excellent condition. The bottom is marked "Snoopy Copr. 1958 United Feature Syndicate, Inc. Another Determined Production". There is a red sticker that reads "Made In Japan". The planter measures about 3 1/2 inches tall."

I think you are probably right especially on the date. I just noticed the little gold sticker on the bottom says “Made in Japan”. It is in very good condition, if one didn’t know better you’d think it was pretty new. It does have “Schulz” signature on the side but it appears to be a stamp or screen print perhaps, under the glaze.

I paid $3.29 for this beer mug on Ebay.

So maybe advertise it as a ceramic beer mug.

Odd it didn’t come up in search results since snoopy planter was a search term I used. Oh well, I appreciate your effort. I’m surprised it isn’t worth a little more. I was mostly curious.

Speaking of collectibles....happened to be in central Minnesota visiting wifey's family the day Roy Rogers died in 1998.

That very day we made our planned trip over to Alexandria, which is known for it's antique shops.....they'd already doubled up the prices on his memorabilia.

The AR Live Thread is on summer hiatus.

We’ll resume in September, with the 3-hour Snoopy Flower Pot Extravaganza in Dubuque, Iowa.

It's typically a sign that a thread has reached its last legs/is about to be pulled by an AdMod, but I like your characterization much better.
