    In the decade between 1920 and 1930, Loetz produced cameo glass products in the genre of Émile Gallé, sometimes signed with the Loetz name, sometimes signed in other names according to customer requests. Some of those names include Lucidus (written sources only), Veles, Velez, and Richard. It is possible that the VELES and VELEZ variants are fantasy names based on the French translation of Loetz Witwe (VEuve LoEtZ).

    This dresser box is in documented shape production number (PN) III-599, a form that dates to 1915 and was done in a variety of colors (not all cameo). This color combo of camilienrot with "schwarzen Knopf" (black button) is documented on this PN in Lötz Böhmisches Glas 1880-1940, Band 2 - Katalog der Musterschnitte.

      This is a very beautiful dresser "box"? Is that the name given my the manufacturer? Suggests to me a lidded dresser pot to me - but I am no expert on Loetz glass. The link doesn't work as it stands, so will look for another. So many peeps on this site are wonderfully knowledgeable about Loetz glass, and have large collections. I am very envious.
      Anyway, put me down for one of these please, and thank you!

      Ah - Link works when copied and pasted.

      Gillian - I think the word used by the manufacturer is the German word "deckeldose", or lidded (box, canister, jar, whatever...). I guess what you call it depends on what you put in it. :)

      Thanks bohemianglassandmore (do you have a nickname?).

      Thanks, Anne! :)
