    This Harrach vase was designed by the architect Jan Koula for the Czech Interior at the World's Fair at Paris 1900. The original design paper is still kept in the Harrachov design book AH 279, the shape 1745 and design F2105 in 'Basdouble Green' execution with white enamel outlined in matte gold. The informations given here are taken from the book by Jan Mergl 'From Neuwelt to the whole World, 300 Years of Harrach Glass', the design foto is from page 345.431. The unique engraved signature with the 'Crown of Count Harrach' indicates, that this vase was made for a special purpose and was possibly exhibited at Paris. The shape 1745 was lateron used in the Harrach production e.g décorated by 'Jaspis' in 1902.
    My vase stands H=25.5 and D=18.5 cm. Without the kind support of Deb, I wouldn't have been able to obtained this unique piece.

      This post is really wonderful. I always love original drawings mapped to real pieces. I am a little surprised that for such an important piece, it does not have a more exciting ground. Don't get me wrong - it's spectacular, but why the choice of transparent green, I wonder?

      Congratulations on acquiring such a rare and wonderful piece Harrach. Of course, all of the credit goes to you, my dear friend, for being such a patient and learned researcher of Bohemian art glass. Knowledge is power and you have spent many hours, days, years and decades learning and studying this amazing art glass. Thank you for sharing the history of this fine example of Harrach with all of us.

      Thank you, Deb for your kind words on my interest into Bohemian glass. I don't know anybody else, who spent such engagement, interest, knowlegde and not at least investments on research of Loetz production, obvious from your steadily new appearing assignments of décors on your website loetz.com, you organize, update, keep alive for all those being interested in Bohemian glass, thank you so much.
