One of the most talented (and imitated) artists working in California in the 1940s and 1950s was Hedwig "Hedi" Schoop (1906-1996). 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. A fire destroyed the Schoop pottery in 1958, at which time she sold many of her molds and did some freelance work for other California companies.

This is a wonderful pair of Asian musician and dancer figures. They stand on bases measuring 5 3/4"d by 3 3/4" and stand 10 1/2" in height. The green and gold colors are striking as well as detailed facial expressions. There are no cracks or repairs, however, there is a chip on the horn instrument. Both are marked but difficult to decipher. Nice set for the Hedi Schoop or mid-century collector.
