    Hello! I've bought these beautiful vases today. Been told it's Loetz but I couldn't find the pattern (checked all in loetz.com) and they have no signature also. Maybe anyone can recognize it?

      What do the undersides look like. Pictures of the bottoms are always helpful.
    2. Alan2310 Alan2310, 3 months ago
      You can add 3 more pictures.
      Like welzebub say bottom picture will help and close up of both surfaces.

      Thanks for the interest, pictures were updated.

      Ha, great you add those base picture, they look to be both LOETZ
      The one with tadpole look to me a Phaenomen Genres, the second one because of the applied decorations it’s look to me also a very special, I have one with no decoration same shape here

      Welcome to CW Rain88. These are very beautiful pieces - particularly the one on the right that has the a plant based decoration. Walzebub and AlanZ2310, have you concluded that Loetz did not sign his work?
    6. Alan2310 Alan2310, 3 months ago
      Look at PG 1-104, this is the closer from the one with tadpole

      From photos it seems that both vases have button pontil. Then it would not be Loetz, but it could be current production from the Czech Republic.
    8. Alan2310 Alan2310, 3 months ago
      What about this one.

      Or this one.

      Look at these vases, for example:

      Beautiful! But, modern. If you like them, no matter who made them!
    11. welzebub welzebub, 3 months ago
      The presence of the button pontil would exclude them from being Loetz production, as they did not produce glass with that style of pontil mark.

      As far as Alan's examples in comment 8, neither of those pieces have button pontils suh as these pieces have, but do have the expected ground and polished pntil marks one expects to see on Loetz production. The shape linked in comment 4 is similar, but different enough that it could not be used as a link for attribution. That example has a 4 fold rim and also indentations in the body of the vessel, where this example does not have the indentations in the body, and has a tri fold rim.

      I agree with Sammyz that the production is contemporary, but very well executed and quite beautiful.

      Thank you very much for your clarification Welzebub on the pontil, absolutely correct I notice now the difference.
      Oh well still learning as you can see, many thanks for taking the time to comment, very appreciate.
      My apologies to larksel and you to welzebub , I shouldn’t come on collector weekly after what happened last month and half, was just not me at the time, I am not like that,,,,,,;-)
      You understand when I posted.

      Thank you very much for the clarification!
      So they are modern but still looks beautiful.
    14. welzebub welzebub, 3 months ago
      Regardless of when they were made, they were both produced by very skilled and accomplished glass artists, and are beautiful examples of production reviving some of the old styles and techniques. These are not easy skills to master. Beauties for sure!!

      I think this is the perfect work of Igor Müller.

      With the button pontil I agree this is the work of Igor Muller.
      Here is an example of the same shape currently on offer;
