The vase in the first photo is newly acquired; the second one has been in my collection for a few years. These vases are characteristic examples of the early Art Nouveau production in the Buchenau glassworks of Ferdinand von Poschinger. Dark violet glass, mold-blown and shaped. Matt iridescence, painted with flat colors and opaque enamel. Fire polished rims with finely ground and polished pontils.

The vases marked with Prod No. 155 were made in three sizes. The smallest, (Prod. No. 155/III - height 21.5 cm) is shown in the second photo. In addition to the production number, this example is marked "S. 65", which, due to stylistic features, and the use of the letter "S" in the design number, can be attributed to designer Carl Schmoll. The next largest size, (Prod. No. 155/II - height 26.5 cm) is shown in the first photo, and in addition to the production number is marked "H. 12.", which is attributed to design artist Betty Hedrich. Two larger vases (Prod. No. 155/I) were once auctioned off at Fischer, Heilbronn, 64 Glass Auction, Nm. 2586. See photo no. 3 for a comparison of the marks on both vases. The last photo shows the relative sizes of Prod. Nos. 155/II and 155/III.
