This is one of my favorites, and it shows my strategy of finding more than one "important" element in the same article. This piece is a "Jack in the Pulpit" form, with a characteristic Loetz snake motif, on top of a very well done Phanomen Gre-29 decor - three for one! But wait, it's signed too - and the signature shows the proper vertical lines associated with a genuine signature (see Loetz.com). I love the buttery golden color of the glass, and the craftsmenship is top-notch on this one. It's not very tall; the only minus for this vase (6" tall, which is average for Loetz). Otherwise this is a special piece of Loetz from around 1899 to 1900. Enjoy!
