    First find of the New Year!

    This decor is technically "unknown" - there are five examples in the Glasmuseum Passau. All of the examples I have seen have exhibited superior iridescence - way more vivid than your usual candia Silberiris. The creta green and silver banded ribbons are applied to the vessel body, and then pulled along with some of the main vessel to form four feet of exact equal length. It's a difficult thing to accomplish technically, as the glass is worked while hot, and the vase has to sit perfectly level once cooled. At just under 10" tall (25 cm), this one sits level, and no grinding was needed to keep the vase from tilting - a great accomplishment for the glass blower. Because of the extra power of the iridescence, I wonder if these could have been made for a special client, the likes of Bakalowits or Lobmeyr? Along with the production numbers and the decor, these are questions that remain unanswered, for now.
