    Here's a grouping of some of my favorite little vases. They each have rubin grounds cased in clear glass and iridised. I love holding them up to the light to see the beautiful, rich red color. They all also have clear bases. The smallest is 2.13" tall and the tallest is 4.75". I haven't found all the patterns and most notations in the reference books point towards them being from around the early to mid 1890's.

      Thanks MALKEY! Happy Easter to you also!
      You are very poetic! Glad you liked them.

      The funny thing about those clear bases, is that you can only see them when they are held at the right angle. Normally the whole vase looks iridescent "purple".

      interesting sammy & the reference books which have the loetz drawings which author & title
      i have loetz books but not as comprehensive visually as i would like
      its just great to share

      These patterns came from Ricke's "Lotz, Bohmisches Glas 1880-1940, Band 2"

      I have the same one as the small one in the second photo. I always thought it was Harrach, glad to know it's in fact Loetz!!
