"Cypern" series glass is documented in "Josephine Glassworks, Art Nouveau - Art Deco - Modern 1900-1950" by Stefania Zelasko. These iridescent glass vases are found in various colors (green, yellow, blue, emerald). The cobalt blue versions are hard to find, and these are called "Bronze-Cypern". The enameled ones painted in this style were designed and executed by Professor Max Rade, who also did a large body of work for Fritz Heckert, according to Zelasko. I last posted an article on this Lower Silesian glass house about two years ago:
Finding this additional cobalt blue example gave me an excuse to re-visit the pieces I already had (see last photo for a group shot).
