    Yes, they are common creta and papillon, but if you're going to appreciate an art form like Loetz glass you must appreciate ALL varieties, not just the rare and valuable ones.

    Here are three examples of Loetz Creta Papillon pieces from my collection.

    From Left to Right

    1) Loetz Creta Papillon Water Font. PN I-7646. 9.75" Tall. Circa 1898. Fire polished rim with a ground and polished pontil.

    2) Loetz Creta Papillon Bowl with Two Handles. PN II-261 (Com. 346/388). 5.5" tall. Circa 1898-1900. Most likely commissioned for Max Emanuel & Co., London. This piece has a cut rim and no pontil.

    3) Loetz Creta Papillon Trumpet Shaped Vase. PN I-6978. Circa 1898. This particular vase is 12" tall, however this pattern shows varying sizes from 5" tall to 18" tall. Fire polished rim with a ground and polished pontil.

    Loetz Creta Papillon is easy to find and relatively affordable to purchase making it an ideal decor for novice Loetz collectors to invest in.
