THE BUTTERFLY SHAPE VASE FROM MCCOY'S BUTTERFLY LINE OF THE EARLY 1940's IS DIFFICULT TO FIND! THIS ONE IS WHITE, MEASURES 5 1/2" TALL (AT TALLEST), 4 1/2" WIDE (AT WIDEST). IT IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH SOME TYPICAL MCFLAWS. THERE ARE STRESS MARKS INSIDE BOTTOM (DO NOT GO THROUGH). ONE CORNER HAS A PRODUCTION "BRUISE" OR IT COULD BE FROM USE -- I'M NOT CERTAIN -- IT'S A 1 1/8" GLAZE BREAK ON THE RIM. IT DID NOT COME LOOSE AND HAS NO EVIDENCE OF REPAIR. IN THE CENTER RIM EDGE OF ONE END IS A 1/8" GLAZE DING WITH AN INTERIOR 1/4" GLAZE BREAK THAT CAN BE FELT -- IT HAS NOT POPPED OFF AND IS DEFINITELY "USE" EVIDENCE. ONE BOTTOM CORNER HAS WHAT APPEARS TO BE A FLAKE-OFF. I LOOKED WITH A MAGNIFYING GLASS AND IT IS NOT DAMAGE -- IT'S PRODUCTION AND DIDN'T RECEIVE COLOR OR GLAZE. DO NOT BE DETERRED BY MY DESCRIPTION -- THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL ITEM AND A WONDERFUL ADDITION TO A COLLECTION!
