    This Loetz PN II-72 (alt 2208) was a Christmas present for Duane from me and it checked many of his Loetz favorite, PG 6893, rubin ground, silver overlay. It was produced ca. 1898. Many collectors don't like the overlay on their Loetz as they feel it interferes with the décor of the glass. I think sometimes it does, but many times it works with the pattern, like I feel with this one. Additionally, the tooling on this silver is likely the best we have seen. Regardless, he is happy and therefore so am I.

    4-1/8" (10.5 cm) tall

      Hi Duda, beautiful vase! Where did you get this? The silver overlay was made by Eugen Marcus, my favorite!
    2. DuDa DuDa, 4 years ago
      Sammyz, Thank you. We got this from a Belgian auction house.

      After reading your comment and doing a little looking (several with your name attached) I can see the similarities in other work attributed to that jeweler. Aside from some of the tooling that appears on everything I looked at, is there a mark or anything else we can look for that they used on this type of silverwork that defines it as theirs?

      Couldn't agree more with your comments on overlay pieces. This one is sinuous and sensual - Looooooove it!!!!!

      sweet ..
    5. Sammyz Sammyz, 4 years ago
      I have not found a mark used on the silver overlay work. He did stamp his larger pieces with his name. The only identification I have found is an original sticker found on a white vase with silver overlay. It has some obvious stylistic similarities to yours
    6. DuDa DuDa, 4 years ago
      Yes it does.

      Thank you for that link.

      Wow, such a magical gift! Absolutely stunning!
    8. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 4 years ago
      Oh my, it is so beautiful! What a wonderful gift! The silver work is very good! I am not a collector of glass but of jewelry, so I must ask if they had silversmiths to help with the silverwork?
    9. Elisabethan Elisabethan, 4 years ago
      ... and the vase is very art noveau but the etchings on the silverwork looks victorian. I just love that mix!
    10. DuDa DuDa, 4 years ago
      Elisabethan, yes, the silver was usually applied and worked by silversmiths, in this case it is surmised by Sammyz (I agree) that the smith who likely did this work was Eugen Marcus of Germany. Of course without a hallmark or paper label the attribution cannot be 100% certain, but I believe it to a large degree.

      Sammyz shows two other examples here, one that retains a paper label.

      DuDa thank you for the information! Very interesting. I see a necklace by him, if the same man, on a welknown action house site and it sais "Made by Eugen Marcus, jeweller to the German court, in Berlin ca 1915."

      Elisabethan, that would be the same man.
