Cobalt blue Papillon happens to be my favorite. This fan shaped vase has extensive glass scaffolding at the base. Thats a tricky feature to add as the maker risks heat checks (cracks) as the glass body cools at a different rate than the applied threading. Executed to perfection here by the best craftsman at Loetz. The later deco period signature dates the vase after 1918.

    It may be Deco in time period BUT it looks very Art Nouveau to me. Reminds me of many Durand pieces I have that have Art Nouveau decorations on Deco shapes. Of course Victor Durand started in 1924 at the height of the Deco Movement.
