I have dreamed of owning the red vase since I first saw on in the late 70'S
I have been informed that it is early Loetz Tango, made before black rims began to be made. Thanks to Jericho Mora, a fellow Glasshound, I have been able to put together 8 vases with the same shape, but in different decors. Eddy Scheepers suggests in might be shape 5220, designed in 1907 by J Hoffmann, but I am awaiting confirmation by a third Glasshound.
The red is 11"; the yellow Tango is 8". Both are from my collection. The others come from Jericho's photo archives. The decor on the third is by Otto Prutchner, which shows how a shape from one designer could be decorated by another. Most of the decors on record belong to late Loetz.
