    It is always astonishing to me that new decors can be developed again and again with just a few basic elements in glass production. I have taken a few out of the large number of decors from the Lötz company in order to show how with just a few changes, e.g. B. the color, by applying crumbs, or quenching in cold water (craquelure), etc. A completely different decor emerged from a once worked out decor. These decors were produced 1: 1 with the highest precision according to precisely defined drawings.
    One such recurring principle is stripes and dots (spots). These design elements run through almost the entire working life of the glassworks. The following decors that can be seen here were created in this way: around 1900 "Streifen und Flecken" (height 13 cm), approx. 1889 to 1906 "Helios" (height 10.8 cm, here probably PN II 3470), 1911 "Ausführung 122" ( Height 10 cm) and finally an as yet unidentified version from the 1930s (height 23 cm). In some of Leopold Bauer's designs, dots and spun threads also play a creative role (e.g. with Titania PG 4252). Even the sky-blue unidentified vessel is based on this principle, it was only changed by acid etching. I think it was created during Adolf Beckert's creative phase and is a reinterpretation of stripes and spots (height 18.5 cm).
