Hedi Schoop (Swiss, 1906-1995) designed this whimsical sculpture entitled “Turnabout Cat” circa 1950s. This charming Egyptian-inspired design came in several sizes—this one is 11 inches tall. The cat’s expression is different on each side. It is molded from thick earthenware and is glazed with matte deep red. Schoop founded Heidi Schoop Art Creations in 1940 and produced decor for the home until 1958. She was based in Van Nuys, California. Prior to founding the ceramics factory, Hedi was a cabaret performer in Berlin. Condition is very good considering the material and age: there is one rather large and a few smaller scratches. There are no cracks, repairs, or chips.
