Let me apologize if you seen this post all over Facebook. I know it gets a bit much when we see the same posts on the same 4 or 5 venues. Regardless I am taking advantage of it because I would love to figure out who made this piece.
What attracted me was the stark design coupled with a bit of whimsy applied to the sides and the fact I have never seen one like it before.
My first thought was Christopher Dresser for Webb but it is not Bronze glass. The ground is amethyst. Regardless, I included a piece from my collection attributed to Dresser/Webb to demonstrate why I thought it might be Dresser.
Another thought was a one off piece by Imperial glass but I don’t think so. I am ruling out Loetz….yes? And so that leaves me with the usual suspects – Kralik, Harrach or Rindskopf.
7” inches tall, polished pontil, fire polished rim and amethyst ground.
Would love to hear your thoughts.
