Have you ever looked at an art objet and couldn't decide if it was tacky or brilliant? This was one of those for me.
I love these Loetz Crete Papillon vases with their M-crimped rims. I also love anything holly or Christmas...and the fact that they are a mirror image set was also appealing. The holly ornamentation is attached with a metal screw and can be removed for year-round enjoyment of the vases. They are listed as being about 8" tall. The PN is 85/3693 made for Bakalowits ca 1899.
After about 60 seconds of thought I bit the bullet and purchased them, for the first time, without even haggling. As they have not arrived yet, the photo above is from the published listing and have marks indicating a missing berry.
Now, it's just 8 months to Christmas and I can't wait to fill them with bouquets of pine, fern and red roses!
