Loetz,

 

$695.00


For Sale is a lovely Vase made by Loetz Klostermuehle of Bohemia which is now the modern day Czech Republic. The Pattern is called "Candia Papillon" and the form is a "Thumbprint or Dimpled" Vase. The Vase has some size to it as it stands 6 1/16" tall and 5 3/4" in diameter.

The Vase has that European flare to it. It is a Classic Greek Urn Shape with dimpled sides, an elongated neck that flares ever so gently. The Vase displays a wonderful Mottled Gold Iridescence with an elongated Gold Iridescence Texture applied directly to the exterior surface. You can see beautiful hues of Platinum Blues and Fuchsia. The decoration when lit, looks like elongated real oil spots running through the vessel. This appears to be a decoration that was applied to a clear base glass. It is a wonderful technique that Loetz developed and appropriately named "Candia Papillon" or by the collectors name "Oil Spots". The quality of this glass is comparable to L.C.T. Tiffany Favrile of New York. These two competed heavily for the Art Nouveau Glass Market in the United States at the turn of the Century.

The Vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. The vase is not signed but it does have a wonderful nicely fire polished top rim. Usually when you have a fire polished rim there would be a counter sunk pontil on the bottom where the punty rod was attached. Not so with this vase. The master glass blower put the Vase back into the glory hole with the tool that pinched the side in and fire polished the top lip. Usually these vases were flat polished because the vase was cut from the punty rod at the top. Not so with this vase as it has a nicely polished and rolled top edge. This is very common amongst the European glass houses as they executed many of their vases in this technique.

If you collect works of Austrian Jugendstil Art Nouveau glass, or American art glass by Tiffany and Steuben please consider this work of art. This is a documented decoration on the www.loetz.com web site. This is probably the best site for documentation of Loetz Decors. They also show Loetz's European contemporaries styles as well.

This vase will certainly become a conversation piece for discussion. This is a quality piece of art glass and I'm sure the buyer will not be disappointed. This vase was made circa 1900-1920.
