    This wonderful decor was first used in 1901, on a lamp shade designed by Kolo Moser for Bakalowits (PN 85/3839). It is that shape that the decor is named after. The Kolo Moser shades are usually found with a ground of candia with either dark blue or dark green spreading. Other ground colors are thea (pale yellow) and opal, which is the color used on this jug. PN II-2299/Krügel (Jug) dates to about 1905, and is found in a huge variety of decors - over two dozen, in fact. This is the first PG 85/3839 I've ever seen in opal. I also love the Silberiris handle. According to the pattern text, there was a matching beaker or tumbler that was made (PN II-2299/Becher). If anyone has one of those lying about, hit me up!

      An exceptional piece Warren, glad to see it in your hands.

      Wonderful piece, Warren. So, did Moser have a hand in the pitcher design, as well?
    5. bohemianglassandmore bohemianglassandmore, 5 years ago
      I don't think so, Jeff. His original design drawing was for a lamp shade, which Loetz reproduced the shape of rather faithfully, but his decor designation was a rough sketch only - little more than polygonal blobs on the pattern. Loetz kind of "filled in the space between" what Moser had drawn. He had a hand in it (the decor), but I see no evidence that he designed this jug, which was produced four years after the shades.

      Thanks, Rick - I love the closeup pic - it's interesting how the application of the oil spots seems to affect the combed threads beneath - kind of pushes them outwards. Glass making is a fascinating art form :)
