It Matches Your Full Metal Jacket

Hats off to artist Fred Conlon who gives new life to a reclaimed army helmet by turning it into a rough-and-tough planter. Used during WWII in both combat and for training exercises, each helmet has a wonderfully raw and unfinished look to it. The base of the planter is made of transmission gears which provide added interest, texture and stability. Exclusively at UncommonGoods. Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary.
