I cant tell if this vase is even bohemian? my camera sucks so I couldn't show the color as well as I wanted but it is more pink then the pictures show. I think its a real gem of a find. I would love to hear any input on maker age and value if any.

    I found one almost like this vase. On the bottom of mine, I found a signature, a inventory number and a date of 8/22/1922. Can not read the signature, so it has been hard to find any information or who the artist is or value. I wish you luck.

    Thanks for your info I recently saw the same vase on Ebay it sold for nothing, like $10. Im glad I only paid a buck! Oh well I guess not every find is a good one. Still looks good with some flowers in it. Thanks again and happy hunting!

    Obscurities, if you get a chance to check out my vase that looks a lot like this one, I'd appreciate it. My link is:

    I stumbled upon this vase too, is it legit?

    The cheap repo is here:http://www.cottageflorist.com/cgi-bin/cottageflitem-dba.cgi/04T200

    but mine looks much more like the art-deco antique link, if that one is real... Any other Loetz experts out there have an opinion?

    This site show the size of the vase.
    "Vase measures 6 5/8" (H) x 4 3/8" (W).
    ........ Arrangement approximately 13" (H) x 11" (W)."
    That might give you an idea.
    It seems these vases are being made by Seattle Glassworks. I think this is a project run by a young glassblower called Harrison Neel.
    "Harrison Neel began blowing glass at age 15 in in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After graduating high school Harrison completed a three year factory glass education in the rural village Orrefors, Sweden. From 2005-2007 Harrison worked on Martha's Vineyard island blowing glass with other artists and designing his own glassware. In 2007 Harrison moved to Seattle, WA. Since settling in the Pacific Northwest, he has worked for several glass studios and artist in the region and continues to develop his own glass art."
    He does classes here too: http://www.schack.org/
    There's an upbeat video of him on the net with two co workers Hanna Jannson and Ulrika Barr:

    Yup, case closed. :)

    Here's another seller with 6 selling for $18.50 each: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Iridescent-Opulence-Vase-/7365426011

    I followed up with the antique website trying to sell it for $923.00 and gave them the reproduction links so they can be informed that they are trying to sell a knock-off as the real deal. Hopefully they will take down that listing.

    Thank you everyone for helping us solve the mystery!
