    Do you have a book reference you can post for this being Loetz? I have the same blank in Mother of Pearl that is very reminiscent of Stevens & William's Pompeian Swirl, and some have insisted is Harrach.

    20thC: Bohemian glasshouses have been known to produced same or similar designs. The DEK signature on the vase confirms the Loetz attribution. As far as the Harrach attribution, according to Kai Hasselbach's research, the MOP shape is exhibited at the Harrach Glass Museum in Nový Sv?t, as stated at http://www.loetz.com/identifying-loetz-glass/early-loetz which you will be able to review the Harrach "Pompeian Swirl" vase and learn more about early Loetz production.

    Thanks, so much Worthit2 for the compliment. Much appreciated.
