Her ceramic figurines were popular before she started her company as well as her figural planters and vases. This vase is in the shape of a shell fan, the outer finish is a combination of gold and white with some light blue as well as black contrast. It is 7 1/4 inches tall, 11 1/4 inches long and 4 1/2 inches across the widest part of the mouth. Signed on the bottom by Heidi Schoop, it is good condition but does have some chips, there are several very small fleabites on both sides, one larger one that is pictured. The one that is pictured is the largest chip. Due to the colors and design of this piece they do not stand out when the vase is displayed and could probably be touched up if desired.
