This is a very small Loetz cabinet vase rich in history - an original "Made in Austria" paper label, hand numbered No. 61(3 or 5?) in Heliotrop ground. There is an incomplete DEK marking underneath the paper label, which I was able to illuminate an impression of through an experimental process of black light, iPhone camera at high magnification, a steady hand, and some post production magic. I definitely looks like DEK I/1?4 - the middle number appears to be missing or incomplete, but it does very much look like the documented examples of DEK I/184 shown on Loetz.com. Feel free to tell me what you see; no labels were harmed or altered in the production of these images. :)
About 4" tall.
