It was also signed by the gifted artist, Ed Alexander who has been long retired which of course make his pieces rather rare. There is no damage whatsoever to this beauty save very light scuffing on the bottom which is to be expected. The vase stands about 6 inches tall and has a maximum diameter of a little over 4 inches.
