Among Loetz collectors, the designs that were exhibited in Paris in 1900 are among some of the rarest and most desirable pieces. This Loetz Phänomen Genre plate was displayed in Paris in 1900. It is 12.75" in diameter and has a very bright iridescence against an orange ground.

This is without a doubt the rarest piece of Loetz I have ever come across. It was so large, it dominated almost an entire shelf in our cabinet. This is the only photo I took of the plate. The plate was in my possession for one day before two collectors began making me a series of ridiculous offers via direct viewings on Skype.

The second photo is from Ploil's rare and wonderful book on Paris 1900 and shows an exact example of this plate. The large line drawing is from Volume 2 of Ricke. The last photo was just acquired by the current owner showing the piece upon display.

    Hey T, Unless this is just a bad photo, I'm not with you on this one. I have the Ploil book & just got back from visiting the MAK in Vienna where they have three of the Paris expo rondelles on display. As you know I have a great interest in the various Loetz decors & colors. I think you would agree that the Loetz color known as "mettalroth" or metallic red as described for PN 429 is more of a peachy color than a true red. Actually, I have not seen this bright of red in any other of the Loetz decors.

    Hi Deb...you are correct. Very bad photo taken with an old Sony camera almost 5 years ago, before I had any clue about how to take a decent shot. In person the plate was very peachy/ light orange ground. It was taken spur of the moment in a display case lit with old fashioned, very small incandescent bulbs. The camera did not have any white balance controls to correct the color. Prior to its sale, the piece was authenticated thru Kinsky with the client providing those photos.
