      Now this is a nice rose bowl. The quality of the work is wonderful; the bending of the petals and leaves is so nicely achieved. The shape of that foot is so elegant. Do you think it's acid etched or hand detailed? (or both?) Thank you for sharing this beautiful bowl.

      Thanks for your kind comment. The décor is the combination of acid etching and hand finishing cut on the wheel (exactly what you suggested). Acid etching added softness. The ruby casing is rather thick – it must have been first wheel cut, then acid etched and then again cut for details. Unfortunately, the literature references on Loetz cameo glass are rather scarce, but it is known that cased blanks were made by Loetz and then sold to other glassmakers for finishing them. Still, in this case there is striking similarity of the décor and the form with signed Loetz pieces.

      Quote: "it is known that cased blanks were made by Loetz and then sold to other glassmakers for finishing them."
      Not glass MAKERS as such but small finishing workshops which specialized in either cutting, engraving, cold painting, enamelling etc. of which there were many, serving all the major glass factories in Bohemia at that time. However I'd be surprised if Loetz did have its own finishing shop too in which they would have concentrated on the best pieces. Cameo cutting is particularly highly skilled. Whether this was within the abilities of the local cutting shops or not, I cannot say. One is also lead to wonder who was responsible for the designs.
      The leaf detail shown in pic 2 is particularly impressive to me and is very similar to a very finely cut single colour piece I have.
