This is the 200th item on CW. So I thought I'd keep this, my latest glass purchase, for the moment. I was at the Collector's Fair two weeks ago and saw it. The dealer was not sure if it was English or Czech; she had been told it might be Kralik. I'd had a bad day the day before hunting at garage sales: my big mouth had meant that a hippo collectible was taken from me. Once bitten, twice shy! To be honest I wasn't sure until I showed it to Marty if it was Loetz. Alfredo later told me it was indeed a Mimosa Candia or is it Candia Mimosa?
It is a rarity here to see them in the wild: Loetz Mimosas I mean.
Mimosa in Australia is called 'wattle' or 'acacia pycnantha' and is the floral emblem of the country. It is a non-thorned variety particular to Australia. The name of this Loetz decor is more obvious than many.
The vase just glows!
It's like a little golden bag!
