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!

Mystery Solved

    No doubt for me; these are fantastic!

    racer4four: Lol! Well, as you can see, I only had 60 seconds of doubt! Mostly over the price, which the dealer claims was a great deal. I think he was likely correct when I factor in all the enjoyment I will get out of them!

    Well, after examining the photos carefully, I see these ARE the exact pair of vases on I also see on the internet that they have been auctioned and re-auctioned repeatedly, passed around like a cheap date, as it were! Rest assured they have now found their "forever home".....until I go broke and have to pawn something fast ;)

    I just go these in. I take back all the bad things I thought about the bronze. They are awesome! The depth of the painting on the leaves is amazing!

    Have to love them again! They are truly amazing, I can feel your joy to get them :-)

    Thanks kyratango! I wish I knew who made the bronze holly. They even painted moss or lichen on the bark!

    Thanks kyratango! I will check that out! I saw the same bronze Holly motif on a known Kralik vase the other day.
