Andy asked me to post this one for him, the latest addition to his growing collection. The photos were taken with a cell phone, and are a bit out of focus, but you get the idea:
You might remember an old Woody Allen movie in which there is a quiz called "What's Your Perversion?" Mine is to hunt for exceptional examples of non-Loetz glass, because they are rare, very specific and still affordable within the range of what my profession can earn.
As a follow-up on Warren's and Volkmar's posts on the Schliersee Glass Factory, I am posting this vase from their Aspasia line. It is over 10'' tall, has a pontil and a fire-polished rim. It also features a very interesting, pure Art Nouveau pewter mount that fits its bicolor appearance (orange on the inside, brownish-red from the outside) very well.
