    This Loetz vase is the same shape as the Loetz Olympia I posted earlier but I don't know the name of the décor for this one. It has a 'panelled' look around the neck like the Olympia but is much more iridescent. The flat top of the rim looks like a mirror.

    I feel that the green is not true, in real life it is deeper and less bluish. The final image gives a better idea of the range of the iridescence.

    If anyone could name the decor I would be delighted. I have searched but still cannot be sure. The décor was identified by welzebub as Loetz Creta Glatt. Thank you!

    Height 14 cm./5.5 inches

      Thank you Thomas, and may you have a good day, too.

      They were so clever. Look at the way the shape and the dimples accentuate the colour change. very fine!
    3. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Thanks, Karen, and there's almost more dimple than vase beneath the neck!
    4. welzebub, 5 years ago
      It appears to me to be Creta Glatt. Bottom section of this page.
    5. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Thank you so much, Craig :) I did notice that it close in colour and silkiness to a piece of Kralik Glatt I have, if that's relevant!
    6. welzebub, 5 years ago
      Yes that is relevant.... It is possible that it could be Kralik also. I am curious about what the pontil work looks like?
    7. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      It has a polished pontil, just like the Olympia.
    8. welzebub, 5 years ago
      If I have a chance I will look in the Loetz drawings to see if I can find the shape.
    9. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      To save your time, Craig, the Olympia was PNII-238 and they come in sizes 4.5, 5.5 and 6.0 jnches.
    10. welzebub, 5 years ago
      OK. I missed that in the opening sentence.... Duh.... pretty much settles it then.
    11. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Thanks anyway......we've all done it!

      Ahhhhhhhhhh, GREEN!!!!!!!!!! [;>)
    13. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Thank you, NevadaBlades, I share your love of green! Luckily for me it seems to have been a popular colour in the Art Nouveau Period.

      What an elegant vase! I have always loved this form. How wonderful to have two but in different decors! Will you display them side by side?
    15. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Thank you, Michelle, not side by side exactly, but each in a little group at opposite ends of the mantlepiece. Varying shades but all green......NevadaBlades would approve!
