I want to wish all of my glass loving friends a very happy holiday season! And just coincidentally, a new Loetz arrived from France this morning; it struck me as being perfect for the season, so I wanted to show it here. This is an example of Loetz's cut glass, with the iconic applied three ball feet that we see in quite a few examples of their work. It measures 7-7/8" (20cm) in diameter x 5" (12.7cm) tall and is a lovely fresh grass green that has a just hint of yellow. The exact cut pattern is not shown in Dr. Kai Hasselbach's article on 'A Study of Loetz Cut Glass Production' on Loetz.com, but an example of the shape is shown in image 44.08. The production date for this vase is in the range of 1914-1936. I hope you enjoy seeing it, and wish you all a safe and happy 2021!
