    Since Lötz glass and Myra crystal are still confused, even in museums, and there is no separate category for German glass, I would like to introduce some of these glasses at this point.
    The Myra glass is a product of the Würtembergische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF) in Geislingen an der Steige. It was developed in the 1920s, based on the work of Tiffany, by Karl Wiedmann under the direction of Hugo Debach (director). The WMF company founded its own glass factory in 1883, which ceased operations in 1982. She was also a customer of the Lötz company from 1900 to around 1925. WMF has published many different glass series, the best known are Ikora glass, Myra glass and the rare Lavaluna glass. Making Myra crystal was a technical challenge. The process to completion took 4 days and took place in several steps. Myra crystal is available in different colors: gold, red, mother-of-pearl and very rarely turquoise. This vase shown here is most likely a test piece that was decorated by cutting and etching. There is no drawing of this vase in the WMF glass sample books, but there is an often recurring form (number 666) in metalwork. Height 33.5 cm. You can see some other examples of Myra crystal on the other three photo panels. There were hundreds of models with different luster colors. The production of Myra crystal ceased in 1939 and resumed in 1948. Some of these glasses were exported to the USA. In 1954 production was completely stopped due to a lack of demand.
