Here's a eye-catching Loetz vase with sterling silver overlay. I am not sure what decor this is, as it has a very light silver-blue iridescence, almost spreading, over clear glass. When seen from the outside the glass appears to be an olive green; seen from inside out it looks bronze, but seen through the pontil to the mouth is has no color.
It is about 4" tall with four indentations. The listing for PN I-7881 in Ricke indicates the existence of an unknown decor named Terresta. This has similarities to Merkur, but the finish is light and almost see-through.
I can't wait to put it to work next year holding the daisy-like flowers of the false chamomile which grow wild here in the mountains.
