    Didn't I tell you yesterday it was a blue Loetz Papillon? Are you posting from Portugal?
  4. manuelg, 3 years ago
    Thanks you all for your attention and comments.
    Alfredo, I've received a mail from you with the information, but I've posted here before.
    I'm posting from Porto-Portugal.

    I'm not a professional, and above all I want to define the main details of this vase, (age, origin and everything that concerns this product, evaluation, etc.)
    Thanks

    THE LOETZ DESIGN CATALOG, THOUGH I HAVE IT, IS WELL BEYOND MY HANDLING CAPABILITIES (IT WEIGHTS LIKE 15 KG!) BOTH THE SHAPE AND THE DECOR ARE PRETTY WELL DOCUMENTED. WHAT IS UNUSUAL IS THE METAL FRAME (SOMEONE COMPARED IT TO LADY GAGA!). EVALUATION CANNOT OCCUR FROM A PHOTO. ONLY YOU CAN JUDGE THE CONDITION OF THE VASE. PORTUGAL IS THE LAST PLACE WHERE I WOULD EXPECT A CZECH VASE FROM THIS PERIOD TO SURFACE.

    Thanks Alfredo! My grand father worked for a long period of time with several middle Europe countries before the II war, and as received some gifts from the companies which he works.
    This vase is almost in good shape except a tiny little scratch in the concave part of the bottom.
  8. glasfreund, 3 years ago
    I only can confirm Loetz as maker of the glass. Cobalt Papillon design (of the later art deco period). The shape fits to similar pieces made around 1923. The metal frame was most probably added by another company, as it does not fit to the period.

    I've found a vase with the same format and finishing, but without metallic decoration at:

    I ONCE OWNED ONE IN BRIGHT TANGO YELLOW WITH BLUE PAPILLON RIM AND HANDLES. IDIOTICALLY, I TRADED IT FOR A LARGER VASE WHICH WAS NOT LOETZ!
  12. manuelg, 3 years ago
    Could anybody help me to evaluate it?
    I would like to know (more or less) its value.
    Sorry for my poor English.

    MANUEL, IT IS AGAINST THE RULES FOR THIS WEBSITE!
  14. manuelg, 3 years ago
    Don't be sorry Alfredo! I don't know any person who have never committed any mistake!
    Hope you can make good trade for the next time. good luck!
  15. manuelg, 3 years ago
    OK! Sorry!
    Just want to have an idea!

    I don't see valuation as an issue with the web site. Buying and selling is not allowed, but many folks would like to have a general value of items.

    I think "what's it worth" is a fair question that many have.

    It is dificult to put a value on things without seeing them in the flesh .Also where and when the object is to be sold . Retail in a shop; at auction ; a market or privately etc.. at present generally world wide prices are down , it is a buyers market. The value placed in some referance books is only a guide as many other factors have to taken into concideration.
  18. scottvez scottvez, 3 years ago
    I agree with you Oz.

    It really is a buyers market.
