This is the 3.rd Loetz vase with this décor designed by Otto Prutscher in 1929 published on CW, one recently by Warren and the other 6 years before by Tony. According to Jan Mergl in 'Loetz Boehmisches Glas 1880-1940' it is a paraphrase onto the famous 'Stripes and Spots' décor designed by Josef Hoffman. The 'thea' bowl - silvery iridized like a shell's mother of pearl - is carried by 8 iridescent large cobalt blue leafes and standing on 12 threefold leafes coloured accordingly. It stands 9 cm high and measures 28.5 cm in diameter.
