I am very happy to be able to share this vase with you - I believe it is quite an unusual Fritz Heckert decor. It features an off-white opalescent body that is then speckled with blue spots in roughly four different sections of the vase, and threaded in blue. The rim is bronze (perhaps brass), with a nice Art Nouveau seed pod or bud motif. When I first bought this vase at auction, I thought it may have been a Pallme Konig piece, since they made is slightly similar decor in red. However, this vase was different enough from that decor that I started doing more research, and found an example of the same decor at Passau, in the Heckert case (image 4). I have since found a few other examples of this decor, all attributed to Heckert. The vase measures 4-1/4" (10.8cm) tall by 5-1/2" (14cm) in diameter. The blue is vibrant and beautiful - this is really a favorite of mine!
