Andy Jelcic's latest.
This is, without any doubt, because this decor has been seen in 6 different shapes through the last three years, all matching documented and partially signed Poschinger shapes. There is also no doubt about two other things: Poschinger came closest to Loetz PGs, closer than anyone else. This is just one more proof of this. The other thing is that the glass is - oddly - missing its mount. The other way round is logical, but why this? In the meantime I know what the appropriate mount looks like, but it may take years until I find one, Therefore I had to find something for the interim period (which might well extend to the rest of my life) and indeed I found a replacement that functions in size, shape, decor, and the time of its making, a German pewter stand. Now the vase can be displayed at least. Please everybody, tell me if you would leave it like this or try to get the original mount no matter what.
Alan, you have the same vase in the appropriate mount. Does this mean that your vase is Poschinger? Not necessarily. German metal producers often commissioned identical glass shapes from more than one producer. In your case I lean towards Josephinenhuette, although Kralik is a possibility as well.
