Loetz,

 

$3,195.00


For sale is a beautiful art glass vase made by Loetz Klostermuehle of Bohemia which is now the modern day Czech Republic. The pattern is called "Metallic Yellow Cytisus" and is highly desirable. It is considered one of the most difficult patterns produced by the artist at Loetz. The vase is a nice cabinet size as it stands 4 1/2" tall and has a diameter of 3 3/4" at the bulge at the middle. The bottom of the vase has a diameter of 2 1/4". The very top lip has a diameter of 2 7/8" outside measurement.

The vase displays a very pleasing classic Grecian urn shape with three thumbprints or dimples at the shoulder of the vase. It has a nice fire polished and rolled top lip. This vase is wonderfully executed on a clear and a yellow opalescent iridescent background glass. The lower section of the vase has a deep blue graduating to green horizontal waves accented with fine black lines or threads running through the waves. I have seen this decoration described as "Combed Yarn" at some respectable European auction houses in my research. There is also an elongated iridescent oil spot surface treatment to add to the spectacular decoration on this vase. It appears that there may be as many as 4 treatments to achieve this fine pattern. The Cytisus decoration is also called, "Goldrain" and it is among the most beautiful decorations ever created by the glassworks Johann Loetz-Witwe Klostermuehle.

The vase is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. When held to the light you can see a few inclusions (carbon particles) trapped in the glass. This is typical of early Loetz glass and early glass in general. This piece is unsigned but it does display a counter sunk polished pontil, this is the sign of a quality piece of art glass. There are illegible numbers or letters etched on the outside of the pontil and this is pictured.

This is a must for advanced Loetz art glass collectors. This decor color is not that commonly found and is quite sought after. The " Metallic Yellow Cytisus" pattern was created in 1902 and made for only a short period of time. I believe there were no more made after 1904. This is considered an early piece of Loetz and rivals any L.C.T. Tiffany Favrile vase. It is truly amazing that this piece of glass has survived 110 years without any damage. A wonderful piece of European art glass.
