bohemiangl…
(318 items)

When I first published this, I thought it was a variant of PN 2/278, but I've since learned that it's about 6 years later: PN II-5671. The line drawing was there all along, but sometimes when I'm browsing the drawings, looking for one thing, another thing sticks out, and today I recognized this drawing at last. The same form is photographed in Ausführungen 91 and 94 (variations of Goldglas) in Lötz Bohemian Glas, Band I. As the newly added line drawing shows, II-5671 also came in Mimosa, which is what this is. This vase is about 3.25" tall, and about as wide. Nice polished pontil, good iridescence. Third photo shows this piece next to a PN 5851 for size comparison.

    I don't think it was caused by the grinding and polishing - more likely just manufacturing flaw from when the pontil was snapped off. Nothing to be concerned about, in my opinion. :)

    I think sometimes they left the center of the pontil as is if it was getting too close to busting the glass

    It is identical to the design drawing! I will be getting a 7", same coloe, sometime soon.
