To me, the ultimate Loetz vase is the one which has a red-on-yellow Hofstotter decor on a form with pulled handles. I believe it gets no better than this, including the Paris pieces. I love bizarre shapes, particularly those with pulled handles. The talent and workmanship required just boggle my mind.
This piece came out of an estate auction in a small town just north of Kansas City, Mo. that was advertized in the ANTIQUE TRADER.......before eBAY. The ANTIQUE TRADER was a weekly publication printed and mailed out on a nwespaper format that I'm sure some of you old-timers like me will remember. (1996)
