This a white McCoy Pottery planter or flower pot that is in very good vintage condition with no chips, cracks, or crazing. It is a piece from McCoy’s Econo-Line series marked USA #502. The inside has a rust mark or two and some flea bites in the base of the pottery. The vintage planter measures 3.25 inches tall and 6.25 inches in diameter across its top opening. The sides are a ribbed design.
In April 1910, Nelson McCoy and his father J.W. McCoy Founded the Nelson McCoy Sanitary and Stoneware Company in Roseville, Ohio. The pottery produced household stoneware and operated until 1918. They also bought, sold, and mined clay. At that time, the pottery joined with eleven other stoneware potteries and formed the American Clay Products Company (ACPC), which was located in Zanesville, Ohio. All of the member potteries produced stoneware to be marketed by the new company.
In 1933, the name of the pottery was changed to the Nelson McCoy Pottery Co.
The family operated pottery for 57 years until it was sold in 1967 to Mt. Clemens Pottery Co. Nelson McCoy, Jr., remained president of the pottery until 1981. In 1974, Lancaster Colony Corporation purchased the pottery and again it changed hands in 1985 to Designer Accents of New Jersey. The Floraline line with its distinctive mark was first produced by the Nelson McCoy Pottery in 1960.

I use the term "very good vintage condition" for pieces that are in excellent condition. Yet please remember that these items have mostly been used before; so they will have a few imperfections. Anything that is obvious will be noted in the description and/or pictures.
When the description uses the term "good vintage" condition; it means that it does have some flaws (and should be noted in the description). Less than perfect, but still in good shape.

Vintage means an item is at least 20 years old or at the most 99 years old. Once it is 100 years old, you can call it an antique. Please be aware that you are purchasing a used item. We keep trying to improve our descriptions and pictures to point out chips or dents or other issues a piece may have.
Saying that, there may be small vintage wear that go unnoticed. I do go over the piece when I buy it, wash it, take its picture, write its description or weigh it. Yet still, sometimes I miss it. The right light will show scratches on dinner plates for example. One time, you could see a crack in a piece of pottery in the photograph that you could not see when looking at it.
Thanks for dropping by.
