Here is an unknown glass vase with a rose-red base covered with a clear layer outside. It has a matte surface, is just under 7" tall by 3" wide, has a polished pontil and no signatures or silver marks. It is substantial and heavy. I wouldn't quite say it is iridescent, but the color shifts from rose-red to purple-red depending on the lighting.
The rows of silver around the bottom depict ripples in water from which grows cattails, Dutch Iris and perhaps a lily. The cattails show amazing detail! The silver style leads me to think this is ca. 1900.
I see that Loetz has a shape PN7507/1 ca. 1898 and which is 7" tall. The paper pattern above shows the PN7507/2 version which is 9" tall. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Regardless of the final verdict, this one is a keeper for me! A rose by any other name is still a rose!
