    The original Bauer Pottery Co. began in 1878 in Kentucky, but relocated to Los Angeles by 1910. For decades, the company produced stylish planters, dishes, and serveware in bright colors and pastels. Failure to work things out with the striking potteries union resulted in the plant's closure in 1962. In the ensuing years, pieces became more collectible, and in 1998, a new owner bought the trademark, continued the designs, created new ones, and the company continues to thrive in its new...MORE incarnation as Bauer Los Angeles. One of the company's newer lines is the Dome Pot with Stand, a modern salute to Midcentury modern bullet planters, available in Bauer Orange, aqua (pictured), and white.
