Retro Bullet PlanterPrice: $158.00
Made in the U.S.A.
These reproduction bullet planters were first manufactured in the 1950's, their conical "bullet" forms inspired by the era's fascination for modern, space age style. As mid-20th century America saw technological advancements across the spectrum of modern living, so too did the world of design. The introduction of new materials allowed for new possibilities in shape, color and quality of manufactured goods. Fiberglass-reinforced resin was especially popular at the time for being lightweight and durable, while allowing for unique shapes and integral colors not possible with traditional materials. And it was quickly introduced into a wide variety of everyday objects from colorful lamps, to chairs and home accessories.
And along came the colorful, stylish bullet planter. Use it for plants, as an ice bucket, or as a catch-all for daily odds and ends. The Retro Bullet Planter is an authentic reproduction of vintage originals in shape, size, and the distinctive texture of molded fiberglass. Planters are offered in a wide variety of colors and nested in powder-coated, steel tripod stands available in three heights.
Powder-coated steel tripod stands will tolerate covered outdoor conditions only. Fiberglass planters should be used indoors only.
Material(s): Compression-molded fiberglass, powder-coated steel
- Planter Bowl (all sizes): 15.75" Dia

We love this bullet planter. It's our second one. We bought it because they hold up very well outdoors, better than any other planter we have. No rust or deterioration. The color is great, a very deep blue. We will undoubtedly order another one as we love them so much. The hardest part will be which color!

I love this planter. It's retro, cool ... and I just wish I had room for a complimenting short planter!
Nice retro planter

This retro planter goes perfectly in our mid-century home. The color was very well represented on the site. Please note that the bullet shape when filled with dirt gets a little out of its perfect round shape, but does not effect the overall look of the planter.
chartreuse and classy

I like it very much. I should've realized, however, that there is no drainage; one must be careful not to overwater. That aside, it's beautiful and a subtle statement accessory.

I had to drill a hole at the bottom so that water can drain. Make sure you drill from the outside in as the hole won't be perfect when the drill bit goes through and comes out. Otherwise, the orange is gorgeous and provides a great contrast with any green plant.
Good materials and excellent retro look!!!

the retro bullet is a very stylish planter.
By: Becky D., Homeowner (louisville,ky, usa)
I recently ordered a retro bullet planter. I was largely pleased . The only drawbacks are that it wasn't as heavy duty as I would have liked, and there was no hole in the bottom for excess water to drain out. I had assumed that the melamine material would have been a bit more durable. However, the stylish nature of the planter far exceeds all the pottery planters on the market. I really really like this and am very happy I purchased it!
Gorgeous, but not pratical for plants. There's no drainage holes:(
By: Lia F. (Los Angeles)
Love the design, but b/c there are no drainage holes we couldn't repot our plant in it. So bummed. Instead it's an ice cooler for drinks!
I was very pleased with my order
By: Louis S., Homeowner (New York)
I love the Retro Bullet Planter. I had a smaller one and was very excited to see that a larger one was available. I also loved the price over the one offered by other online sites.
