    Marie (Marica) Waltl (b. 1876) was an artist from Prague who married a sculptor named Karl Wilfert Jr. She specialized in painting and design, and began working with the Loetz glass works in 1905, maintaining her contact with them into the 1920s. Her designs were made in very small numbers and some were designed for the firm, some were used by her in exhibitions, and she would also sell to acquaintances in the Women Artist Club in Prague (source: Loetz Series II Paper Patterns for Glass, Jitka Lnenickova). This one is production number (PN) II-3900, ca. 1906. These early versions of "Schaumglas" differ significantly from the Schaumglas produced by the glass works in the 1930s, and they don't show up often.

      I wonder how many of these vase-cups were made. I don't think so much. It may be one of the DEKs listed in PPN 3900, i.e. 760 or 772, and the other is a vase in Loetz Band I Figure 318.
      It is also interesting that the last traces of Marie Walt are from Indonesia. And then there is no more information about her.

      I usually don’t comment here in “Art Glass” because I know nothing of glass but this piece is so stunning I just had to chime in. I love the grapes, the leaves, and especially how the art continues down to the “roots”!

      Beautiful and it is fun that it has "rooted" itself to the table!
