A 13 inch PG 1/4, Prod #346/668 Loetz vase. I have not used trick photography nor Photoshop for this picture. The drip, tadpole, elongated prunt, (What's the accepted term?) really is huge. It is 1-3/4 inches in diameter. And the middle one is nearly the same size. (2007)

    One of my favorite decors.

    ...and this one is on the salmon colored ground which gives it much better contrast than the typical candia ground. Gorgeous.

    The body of the vase minus the "drips" is the exact same as my PG 85/3780. Add drips and it's a different P.G.

    A very prominent English designer by the name of Christopher Dresser is responsible for the shape of this vase. This angular design is certainly a lot different from what one would normally consider to be Loetz, but it fits just fine in my quest for the unusual.

    I've heard Dresser bounced around in relation to Loetz, as well as some ceramics makers of the time, but I've never been impressed with the evidence. Is there any documentation relating to Dresser collaborating with Loetz? I don't doubt that the form is "Dresser-like" because his tortuous forms were a sensation at the time, I just wonder if there was any official documented relationship between the designer and Loetz.

    Hello cogito-
    I acquired my information on the Loetz-Dresser relationship from Ricke "Loetz Bohmisches Glas 1889-1940" book I. There are five attributions to Dresser on pages 101 to 103, color plates 63 to 67, including a vase like the one above on plate 65. I can only assume that their information is credible.

    This is great. Thanks. I'll have to get that book back out.

    Yes, plate 65 is the same vase attributed to Dresser. And it calls the tadpoles "tropfen-formige" (umlaut on the "o" in "formige"). I believe in German that does mean "tadpole-shaped". So the official term for the applications should be "tadpoles" I suppose.
