    I am pretty sure this is a Kralik Purple Glatt vase, which means the Loetz Austria signature is a fake. Besides, the signature does not look right. It was hard to photograph, but it looks like it was scratched into the surface instead of engraved.

      Thanks for your comment Alan2310! Are you familiar yet with Check out Purple Glatt in the visual decor index and you'll find a vase just like this one.
      Have fun collecting!

      Thank you, Alfredo. I thought 'Eggshell' was usually more of a bronze color, but I suppose in this case it is not the color but the thickness and weight of the glass that counts?

      Eggshell examples are typically distinctly bronze in color. I do not believe this to be Eggshell. The middle example of Eggshell on is in my personal collection, and the surface color of the vase is undeniably bronze in color, although it is iridescent and shows other colors. It also has a smooth finish on the base, unlike the textured base on this example.

      Examples of this décor, likely made by several houses, can be difficult to attribute without a known shape, or a provenance mark or label that is recognized. They also generally (not always) show larger bands of colors on the smooth exterior of the vase such as yours does.

      I am curious what color the glass is if you look from the interior out at bright light?

      Nice blend of colors.
