    Well, if you're anything like me, my better half does not really understand my obsession with art glass, but she admits to liking this vase. Not that it's not a interesting piece, it's just that it came as a surprise to me that she likes any of my glass collection!!

    Having said that, this is an interesting vase and one to which I can't identify with any certainty, a manufacturer. It has a shape which I would regard in a genre closer to 'classicism' (if that's valid) rather than Art Nouveau, but those vertical lines and applied veining are so Loetz like, that if it hadn't been for a knowledgeable friend sowing the seeds of doubt I would still firmly believe that it was Loetz. But now I'm of the opinion that it is Loetz-ish!

    It's a clear glass with coloured blue veining, it has the remnants a kind of gold applied to the top, although very little remains and has an unusual semi-iridescent gold effect visible along the neck. I have attempted to photograph this in pic 4.

    If anyone could confirm one way or the other, I would be enourmously grateful.

    I forgot to mention it is 13" / 33cm tall!

      Though this vase looks like a mixture of the Loetz décor 'Chine' with the mouth lent from Holubetz design and made obviously by some (ignorant) glass imitator, it is nevertheless a true (and unique) Loetz vase made in the 1930's, a period where Loetz tried to go back to its own historic styles, now produced in a more modern appearance. I have photos of 4 different vases exhibiting this type of 'Art Déco Chine' decoration applied to shapes used in the Loetz 'Schaum' style.

      Thank you kairomalte, you have reaffirmed by belief that this is truly Loetz, something I always believed anyway. Thanks for the input, very much appreciated!
