Sometimes, one is lucky. this vase was advertised by a truthful dealer as damaged: a couple of heat checks where the serpent touches the vase, the same as it occurs with applied handles.I decided to try for it, since unlike many collectors I do not mind a damaged piece. After all, I am fond of saying, how are you going to look when you are 112 years old? Rusticana refers to the pattern of knobs on the glass. I was also lucky I did find the design number in the Loetz Design book. A further point: the serpent exhibits the metallic iridization named silberiris. The vase is 7.5". The last picture shows a little "melon vase, 6" tall, which I had stashed away and never photographed. The production Production number refers to the shape: II-333(1898); 346-715(1900). It reads: Series II, design number, and date. In 1900 it appears twice.

    I'm glad you like it Al, and thanks for the tip about CW. I always liked this vase myself, and I always try to be truthful when I sell. The next piece of the puzzle is to learn all I can, and you have been tremendously helpful yourself. Thanks Dr. Al!

    You are welcome. I'll send you a pic. of the green Loetz display, most before 1900.
