    I have had these for a number of years now, I am amazed that they sit in my house every time I look at them.

    Argentan, also known as Ausführung 111, is a decor which is not all that frequently seen, and generally when seen it is in smaller examples usually standing in the range of 4 to 5 inches in height. The Passau has a shelf of examples of the décor which number around 7 or 8 if memory serves me correctly. None are this shape, or this size.

    These are the only examples I have ever seen in either this shape, or this size, which I would consider to be monumental for Argentan pieces. These stand at 9.5 inches tall.

    Purchased a number of years ago off of ebay, being sold as mid century cranberry Murano glass, I am still stunned that I was the lone bidder. The "exploded foil" work in these is really quite stunning, and the décor overall is much more impressive in hand than I can ever get to show in images of the pair.

    The last image is a smaller example also misidentified and purchased off ebay, which I have since passed on to another collector. That example stood at about 4 inches in height.

    Truly stunning vases by Loetz produced ca 1908.

      If I recall correctly, did these not come form Canada?

      Well, as a representative of the Canadian government, I regret to inform you that you must return them immediately to Canada in my care until the proper authorities can decide their outcome. Thank you for your attention in this matter.
