This Loetz Ausf 136 came to me from Italy; it was described as Murano, which I can very much understand due to the use of similar blue glass with aventurin in some Murano pieces. What surprised me most about it in person was how very shiny it is due to the flashed finish; it makes it quite difficult to photograph! I do love the applied berries with their silvery iridescence. It is a quite a good sized vase, measuring 8"(20.3cm) tall x about 5-1/2"(14cm) wide. I was happy to find its paper pattern in my book and CD - PNII-7501. I just realized that I have quite a few Loetz vases in 'dunkelblau' (dark blue) now - 7, I think! I must have a love of this shade of blue!
