This was the second part of the trade that brought me the Loetz Delphi I posted about a week ago. I'm not sure who designed this piece, but the form is documented Fritz Heckert. Several examples of similarly decorated pieces are found in Fritz Heckert, Kunstglas Industrie 1866-1923, by Stefania Zelasko. This one, with scroll decoration and strong iridescence, is particularly nice on the cobalt blue ground. The enamel decorated sections around the top and bottom alternate in four colors.

    Great piece Warren! I always thought the Jodhpur pieces were etched and enameled, not iridescent enameled pieces. Does the Heckert book show this iridescent enameled Heckert work also as Jodhpur?

    it's in great condition too. the gilding looks perfect! the basic design element is like jodhpur but iridescent and enameled isn't shown as jodphur. I always kind of thought it was only referring to the etched and enameled for that decor as well.

    This is a quick look at the book. The article in German.

    Thanks for all the comments - they are very useful!

    I was trying to be careful about the description on this piece - initially, I thought I even knew who the designer was, but I came to realize several things:

    1. Pieces identified as "Jodhpur" in the Heckert book were attributed to a few different designers (Max Rade, Martin Ehring, Franz Reuleaux), so I didn't even try to go there, although this piece most closely resembles the designs of Reuleaux.
    2. I did note that the Jodhpur pieces in Zelasko's book all appear to have engraved elements.
    3. It occurred to me that differences can occur between design and execution.
    4. It didn't escape my notice that most of the Jodhpur designs are on clear glass, and mine is a cobalt ground. It also incorporates scrolls in the design that don't appear on any of the published designs in the book.
    5. It is on a Heckert form (see Pinterest link below)
    6. Given all these observations - this appears to be a hybrid between "Jodhpur" and "Bronz-Cypern" (the author's designation for a series of enameled iridescent pieces done on various colored grounds, among them cobalt blue).
    7. Since the enameled decoration appears to be Jodhpur, but the glass appears to be "Bronz-Cypern", I decided to go with the decoration to describe this piece.

    I could be wrong - but this is the best idea I could come up with on the available evidence. :)
