I have been looking for a nice example of Loetz's Metallin decor for quite a while, and was recently lucky to find one at a very reasonable price; funnily enough, I also found a second one, just a few days afterwards! These vases are both in lovely condition, and have silver overlays that were made by Alvin. Alvin Mfg. Co was a company based in the US in New Jersey, and their silver work is often found on Loetz pieces. I like the variation in green tones on the vases; one appears to be more silvery due to, I believe, the thickness of the applied powder on the surface of the glass before it was fired. The taller vase is 6.3" (16cm) tall, and the other is 5" (12.7cm) tall.
