    This Marie Kirschner vase is one of the first solder vases in my collection, but it is definitely my first MK vase. When I bought it many years ago, it tore a big hole in my budget, but I have never regretted it as I have never seen this model again afterwards. The design is now well over a hundred years old and can still be described as "modern", it always pleases me anew.
    The vase was designed for roses and fascinated me from the beginning and sparked my love for this artist.
    Marie Kirschner was underestimated for a long time; she fared like most female artists of her time. Although they were artistically excellent and way ahead of their time, they were simply more or less forgotten. MK has influenced the glass production of the Lötz company to a considerable extent. I dare to say that their drawn designs (e.g. 1090/24 and 1090/25, glass with inlays) have led to the best results for the company. They were a cornerstone for the following product range, such vases are very rare and expensive today, but they would probably not have been made without this outstanding artist.
    My vase is one of the last verifiable designs (1913). PN 1090/277, crystal rolled at an angle, light iris. Colorless glass, optically blown, three-sided pyramid merging into a conical cylinder, lustered, signature "MK". Height 32 cm.
    If you want to learn more about the work of Ms. Kirschner, I recommend the article by Wolfgang Hennig in "Lötz" work monograph Volume 1.

      If you want to edit your text, I believe it is possible. But it was quite a Loetz beginning you had. Thanks for sharing these beauties.

      Thank you for your discussion of Marie Kirschner. I have been thinking about her lately, and studying her designs. I agree that she was, and still is, in my opinion, undervalued as a designer. Your vase is a beautiful example - thanks for sharing it!
