This decor was part of a brief revival of old techniques at the Loetz factory in the early to mid 1920s. Although the shapes are updated and owing to designs by Otto Prutscher, the colors and techniques used hearken back to the Phänomen period of the early 1900s. The ground is Thea, a pale yellow opal color that (in this case) glows bright green under black light. The "federn", or feathers, are made of dark blue and silver threads that are more three dimensional (raised off the surface) than their earlier cousins. The decor, and a vase in a very similar (but wider) shape were exhibited at the International Exhibition in Paris in 1925. This vase is about 8.25" tall.

    Very nice ... Has to be a Refractive or Birefractive iridescent thread they used for these ... produces a visual 3D depth effect rather tha a raised surface ... another of my favourites from Passau ... :-)
