I took some pictures of my partner's collection this weekend and I cannot help but uploading some of them... specially this one: an amazing Loetz mounted on silver.
I will ask him about the proper data and write them down this evening or tomorrow, as i don't want to give false information.
Will keep you posted on this!

Ok, here is the "good information" about the vase: it was made exclusively for Lobmeyr with shape No. 411-00 in the Tiffany-Art decoration (in moss green and blue) in 1900. The silver mounting was made by the Viennese jewelers Rozet&Fischmeister (this firm is still in business nowadays) and is one of the few times Lobmeyr didn't commision the mountings to Gebrüder Frank.
I guess being made in 1900 explains the shape in a more floral or, as cogito said, a bit Archibald Knox-ish fashion, as it was made before their discovery of the work of Charles R. Mackintosh the Viennese designers emphasized in their characteristic geometric style.
