Is a very cute and very collectible. Was fashioned and hand painted by Hedi Schoop in her 1940s Los Angeles pottery works. We believe it was intended to be a business card holder (see pictures) but could serve as a toothpick holder or a planter. Just imagine this on your desk holding your cards or at the front desk of your company.
It has the Hedi Schoop signature on its underside. The accordion opening is about 3.
We find this porcelain artwork to be in excellent vintage condition with only 2 very minute. Chips at the very bottom of its feet. She designed and modeled almost every piece in her line. Though her ceramic creations include vases, plates, bowls, ashtrays and other forms, Schoop's figurines of men and women are the most popular with collectors.
In 1933, Hedi Schoop fled Nazi Germany with her husband, composer Friedrich Hollander, and immigrated to Hollywood, Calif. In 1940, Schoop began her business "Hedi Schoop Art Creations". Schoop's company employed more than 50 workers and turned out as many as 30,000 pieces per year in the late 1940's.
