... I know I have an aversion to S.O on my Loetz glass. But this one just plain works. To my eye, this is one of the rare occasions where it doesn't detract. In fact, dare I say, I think it actually compliments the unidentified Phänomen Genre decor.
The color changes from a yellowish oyster at the rim to a deep rusty orange at the base with scattered Papillon type oil spots interrupted by random pulled and twisted waves of decoration.
What I find incredible is that all of the delicate overlay is present and accounted for without any lifting or damage. One side of the vase -first photo- has much more overlay work than the other. A European friend told me that they refer to the "better" more decorated side as the chocolate side!
This one stands 8 1/2" tall.
