Loetz began producing this type of imitation stone glassware in the 1880s until about 1900 in various colors, such as carneol (red), onyx (brown), lapis (blue), malachit (green), and green onyx. The use of uranium in the glass dates this piece to after 1890. For further reading, see Collectible Bohemian Glass 1880-1940, by Robert and Deborah Truitt.

    Interesting color choice on the upper enameling. I'm curious. How did you achieve the blue background in your UV photo?

    @cogito - the background is white posterboard - the blue is the result of the blacklight being the only light source, and it's directed straight down inside the vase. It's just the background glow of the UV light.

    Gotcha. Nice effect. I'll have to play around with that next time I get a uranium glass piece. Thx.
