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.

    WOW!...one of the nicest I have seen.

    Interesting color choice on the upper enameling. I'm curious. How did you achieve the blue background in your UV photo?
  3. bohemianglassandmore bohemianglassandmore, 3 years ago
    @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.

    This vase might nearly certainly have been made by Harrach, you may compare the almost identical enamailing taken over by Harrach from Racinet plate XIX, 18 as shown in "From New World to the Whole World, 300 years of Harrach glass" page 282 fig.331

    Kai, I would agree with you, and I have posted some Harrach pieces here with the same decoration as in the Harrach book, but then there is Plate 3 in Cantz, as well as the marmoriertes pieces in the front of Ricke Band I that show the same type of decoration as on this piece. When it comes to marmoriertes and the differences between Harrach and Loetz, there is a lot of uncertainty.
