The Poschinger glassworks at Buchenau in the Bohemian Woods in Germany is the oldest documented hut there and it was founded in 1629. Under the influence of the designer Carl Schmoll von Eisemwerth, Poschinger entered the high end production of Art Nouveau vases and won a silver medal at the World Expo at Paris in 1900. Within this period and obviously designed by C.S.v.Eisemwerth, my vase was made. Poschinger considered these vases, like Tiffany, as exclusive art objects and produced them mostly only once. Poschinger did not rely on effectful irisation, but set a very high value on exquisite shape, harmonic colouring and artistically combed extremely fine threadings, not reached by any competitor. Poschinger produced some of the finest Art Nouveau vases ever made in Germany, but due to their very limited number, Poschinger is by far not so well known (and valued) as eg compared to Loetz. My vase stands 12.5 cm high and has a diameter of 13.5 cm. It is made of clear glass with an iridized spreading opale yellow inner case and an iridized orange outer case carrying the finely combed complex décor of dark blue threadings.
