This pretty handle vase, therefore a jug, stands 14.6 cm. and is made of white underlaid clear glass (body) and black tinted glass (plinth and handle), which presentes a hardly visible fine violet shimmer specially at the joints. I suppose it can be described as a sample of tango glass. The lower part of the base with a polished pontil.
The wall is decorated with two different kinds of stylized flowers (Ausführung 170. Thanks Michelleb007 and Bohemianglassandmore!). This type of decor on Loetz's tango glass is often attributed to Dagobert Peche. I don't know, as the painters of this decor are sometimes named Wilms, father and son - I cannot remember where I read this information. In my next posting I'm going to show a bowl with very similar decor but with different flower types, which are more likely Peche's.
Lötz, Klöstermühle, ca. 1915
