I like collecting one shape in different colors and decors. I have had the green Loetz Neptun for quite a few years, never quite decided to get rid of it. Then, about a year ago, searching on E-Bay UK, I found the second, also Neptun but in non-iridized crystal (the picture makes it look frosted, but it isn't) with an green handle. The third, also from the UK, is my first Spiraloptisch. The dealer did not specify, but I suspect the presence of uranium, for which I will test when it arrives. All three have large polished pontils.
Correction. The third vase is about a full inch smaller than the other two, which are 6.5". I did test it; it is Vaseline glass, so I have decided to call it Olympia Spiraloptisch.
