    This one kind of defies description - and it's even harder to photograph. It's unusual for its irregular shape, and the colors, which blend into each other so much, it's hard to tell whether the ground is (mountain) blue, green, or yellow. The finish is glossy, and the iridescence appears to be applied with a brush or sponge. Properly signed etched signature Loetz Austria within the ground and polished pontil.

      Iridescence is created by applying metal salts to hot glass, so can't be sponged or brushed. It's probably slightly inadequately sprayed so you can see the passes

      I don't really understand techniques all that well, so I'm sure I'm not describing it right - It may not be the iridescence, but rather a stain or some other chemical process. I added a new photo to show the effect on another vase that I have that uses the same technique. There were a series of pieces that have textures like this in blue, green, and silver/yellow.

      Maybe what looks like brush marks are from when the vase was being shaped and rolled around. When the iridescence was applied later the marks showed through giving the impression of a brush stroke? Just a thought. Cheers,

      I had my eye on this one too. Nice piece.

      Interesting; I see what you mean. I wonder what caused the marks.
