    The name of this decor is a mouthful - Candia (colorless) wellenoptisch (wave optic) mit (with) dunkelgrün (dark green) glatten (smooth) tropfen (drops). The only difference between this decor and Coppelia Weiss (White Coppelia) is that the drops are in fact, smooth, vs. the drops on Coppelia, which are actually in three parts. Even the applied rim is the same. So, why the lack of a catchy name like Coppelia? The simplest explanation may be that we just haven't found it on an invoice yet, and it is still awaiting discovery. Another simple solution that I think must be every bit as plausible is that the series of pieces made this way were all made for the same firm - von Moltzheim in London. Since this was a limited series of works for the same client, it may have not entered mass production worthy of a "Loetz" decor. CW readers may recall a piece posted a week or so ago in "Crystall schief gewaltzt mit grünen tropfen" - this was part of a series of pieces also made for a singular client - in that case, Max Emmanuel, also of London. If the design was from a British firm and executed by Loetz, this may also explain why it did not find its way into the Loetz naming machine. At any rate, a series of production numbers from 1905 encompassing (but not limited to) II-2005 through II-2019 were all executed in this manner. I love the wave optic ground- it is a great way of reminding us of the fluidity of glass as an artistic medium.
