I'd better be honest with my fellow collectors: when I first saw this one, I thought it might be Loetz, designed by Marie Kirschner or inspired by her designs. But as soon as it arrived, its specific color and soap-bubble like iridescence showed that it was made by Fritz Heckert. It is a true craquele, meaning that it was not cast in a mold with lines imitating processes that never actually took place, but obtained by sudden cooling. In my opinion, everything crackled has to be a result of a genuine procedure. The smallish dimensions of the vase (4'' x 5'') are in good proportion with its form and finish.
