What a FABULOUS find! ... all the way from France.. A very impressive pair of early Loetz Federzeichnung "Octopus" Vases ca. 1887 .. they measure 8" tall and 5 1/4" or so wide..( sweet size).. Patent, painted along the pontl mark in gold.. Satin / Matte finished..... They appear to be a Pinkish Salmon color, which is not seen as often from my understanding.. White opal ground covered with a Pink / Orange overlay, with polyp like air channels within clear casing, and beautifully painted gold squiggly like decoration all over, with painted gold decoration around the rims as well...

I have to thank my VERY GOOD FRIEND Leah Goodwin, of Goodwin Antiques for sharing this amazing find with me! she is the best ever.

Dave / Dlfd911 is the lucky new owner of one of these, and I want to thank him as well for splitting the pair with me, and all his advice he has given me.. a great man for sure!!! :)
