The is another example ofFritz Heckert enameled uranium glass from the early 1900's. I think this pattern is called Cypern. This vase is unsigned. I imagine it may have worn off over the years all though the enamel is in extremely good condition.

    Very nice. I believe that Cypern is the type of glass, not the pattern. And, if my visual memory is correct, I believe that a vase with this pattern is in the Passau Museum collection.

    'irresierendes Glas', or iridescent glass is modeled after glass that had been buried for 2,000 years. The iridescent effect is the result of a chemical reaction between the glass, and the surrounding earth (as a result of having been buried for 2,000 years). Scientist were able to develop a technique that caused the same effect chemically during the glass refining process. 'Cypern' was the name given to the Roman art style found on these unearthed Roman objects. The vase pictured above is only one of the many objects within the 'Cypern' series. Josehninenhütte also produced their own 'Cypern' series.
