This beautiful abstract art serpentine vase made by Royal Haeger is stunning. This white vase is 16 inches tall and has a snake like shape curling around it. The widest part of the base measures 9 inches. The inside of the freeform vase has a shiny glaze called Lave or Boko glaze in a bright aqua blue color. I see no cracks or chips in this vase. The bottom of this art impression vase has the Haeger name and #483 USA. It is in excellent condition. Shipping weight is 5 pounds with packaging. Haeger Pottery of Dundee, Illinois sadly decided to close its doors after 145 years of operating. The scheduled date of closure was sometime in May of 2016. The reason for their closure is the drastic change in the market with countries overseas flooding the market with cheaper pottery. This vase is absolutely beautiful and a great example of a time when pottery was made by talented artisans.
