A Loetz "Phänomen Genre 7773" vase with Silver Overlay by Alvin. Candia ground with two wide silver/blue iridescent bands combed towards one another creating a single row of 'windows'. Ruffled rim and 3 thumb-print indentations. PN I-7468 Circa 1898 (Neu 822 Circa 1900).
Marks: (effaced A), STERLING M08, 925/1000 FINE, Initials "HFB" engraved into front cartouche. 9.5 " tall. 3" across bottom. 3.5" across widest width.
Update: I knew this vase came from the Baldwin estate in New Orleans, but thanks to info from "swfinluv1", I now know the "HFB" monogram stands for Henry Fay Baldwin (1864-1919). The Baldwins were a prominent society and business family in New Orleans.
