    Product Details

    Burley's Bookplate planters are modeled after a 15th century book tradition of placing an initialed design or personal coat of arms on the opening pages of books as a sign of proud ownership. Each letter design was hand carved and surrounded by lovely vines and leaves. They are perfect for housewarmings, weddings, holidays or jazzing up your entryway.

    *Bookplate's are no longer in production, so as we run out of a letter, the option will be taken down. If you order a letter and we end up being out of that option in the color chosen, we will contact you to let you know that it is out of stock and we need to cancel and refund your card or if we have it available in the other color.*

    These planters are 100% handcrafted with rich clay deposits in Roseville, Ohio. Burley is the last American Made pottery factory around. We still make pottery using the lost art of Jiggering and some of our jiggermen go back generations. 

    Size: 12”d x 12”h

    Care Instructions

    As with all ceramics, our products are not freeze proof, so they must be taken in for the winter to prevent any water from seeping in, freezing, cracking, and breaking your beautiful planter. 


    Does it freeze?
    A: Yes. Our products are not freeze-proof and if any water is allowed to sit in the tops and freeze, it will cause cracking and then will break. Winter storage is always recommended to prevent any damages. You can get full year use out of your birdbath if you use a birdbath heater for the colder months.

    Are the glazes safe and free of toxins?
    A: Yes, all of our glazes are safe for the birds. All of our glazes are free of lead and cadmium.

    Will the handpainting fade?
    A: Unfortunately yes, but this takes many, many years. Like most things left outdoors, they will eventually fade. If you have one of our Handpainted birdbath sets and see your piece fading, you can find Outdoor Paint and touch it up for a personal touch. 

    Is it really made with local Ohio clay?
    A: Yes it really is made right here in Roseville, Ohio! We have a local clay mine, which is dug weekly and hauled down the road a few miles to our factory in Roseville. Everything is made on site here, from dirt to finished product and then shipped directly to you. We make about half of our glazes ourselves and source the others from our friends at Mayco in Columbus, OH!

    My top broke on my birdbath, is there anything I can do?
    A: Sadly no, once they are broken there is not much you can do. Most glues are not safe for the wildlife that will be enjoying your birdbath. If you only have hairline cracks in your top and want to prevent further damage - we recommend using FlexSeal Clear. Once the sealant has cured for 24hrs, it is safe for the birds.

    How do I clean my birdbath?
    A: Use a wildlife friendly cleaner to scrub any dirt and gunk away. Some of our staff use a bucket of hot water and some Comet to clean theirs. Just mix comet with the water and scrub until clean. Rinse thoroughly Do not let the mixture soak in the bath.

    How do I clean the Birdbath Fillers?
    A: You can clean the fillers the same way as you clean the birdbath tops. Use a wildlife friendly cleaner and a good scrub brush to scrub the gunk off the fillers and then rinse them off really well. Don't let the fillers sit in the solution for too long either.

    My item arrived broken, now what do I do?
    A: If any of your items arrive broken, don't sweat it! Take a picture of the damaged item(s) and send it to us in an email with your name & address and we will send out a replacement at no cost to you.

    Great gift

    I received this plant for Christmas last year and I bought 3 this year to give as gifts. Very good size with initial and impressive.

    Bookplate planter

    The planter is beautiful, although the corners of the initial are raised more than i would like. Not a major issue though.
