    I just had to show you folks this awesome vase/Persian rosewater sprinkler by Loetz, ca. 1900. It is very substantial (6" x 7.5"), has 12 lobes and is lavishly overlayed in sterling by LaPierre. I love the Art Nouveau swirls and the detailed poppy blossoms. And when the sun shines into the vase...WOW, stunning clear blue.

    The vase is beautifully iridescent in shades of gold/yellow and has lines of silver running horizontally around it. It has other swirls underneath, but they are more silver than Heliotrope in color. I couldn't ask for more, except that it were signed!

    I filled the sprinkler with water to see what it could do. It dispensed an amazingly delicate stream of water in a very controlled manner. How fun is that!

      Beautiful! PN II-827 which also mentions the 12 indentations. Congratulations on acquiring such a great piece of Loetz.

      Thanks for the info Deb! I recently saw the same shape in a classic Candia Papillon so I was sure it was the real thing.
