eBay Find of the Day: Platner Planter

The iconic, metal-and-glass pieces from revered midcentury designer Warren Platner -- who worked with such luminaries as Eero Saarinen and Florence Knoll -- normally fetch several hundred to a few thousand bucks at auction and from retailers like Design Within Reach and Hive Modern.

In comparison, this modest Platner plant stand is looking like the bargain of the century (that is, unless it gets bid up like crazy before the auction ends Sunday evening).

Place it in a corner or against a wall with a verdant fern set inside, or top it with a piece of circular glass and use it as a side table. Then gloat away over your sweet score.

Current bid: $50.
