Inspired by the original bookplates in the 15th century, these Bookplate planters are sculpted with a personalized initial surrounded by lovely vines and leaves. Back then, books were a rare and expensive luxury. Owners proclaimed proud ownership by placing an initialed design or personal coat-of-arms to the opening pages of their books. The bookplate became a label of ownership and a symbol of a family’s wealth and good name. Whether displayed outside on a front porch or inside an entry way or on a hearth, these planters will stand as an expression of proud ownership.
