Do you recognize these cute chicks?

Hi, all.

I think I've learned how to get pictures into the post directly, so maybe this post will work better than my first attempt for help on this item.

I suspect this cute little plant pot is not just the common kind I might get at a florist today because of the hand lettered number on the bottom, but I have had no luck in my research. I cannot find information on anything that looks similar, even. I'd like to learn the maker and/or time frame of manufacture.

Size is just under 3-1/2" tall by 5-1/4" wide by 3-1/4" front to back, with opening in back for plant. The number B4802 is hand lettered in darker blue on the bottom.

The two chicks were created separate from the egg and attached, but are shaped to fit exactly. The egg is robin's egg blue, maybe leaning towards aqua, with thin cracks painted around the front opening.

The third picture is taken from behind and a bit above so you can see the pocket where the plant would go. You can see the tops of the little chicks heads facing forward.

Anyone recognize this? Any help will be appreciated.

The number on the bottom appears to be a serial number or possibly a date code.
