My newest Loetz features a known but undocumented Loetz decor in Candia colored glass that is caged in Crete (green) with an iridescent finish. It is in wonderful condition, with not even the tiniest chip to the six feet. A vase with a very similar cage design is shown on Loetz.com in the Neptune decor, so I estimate that this decor is also roughly contemporary with Neptune, and probably dates to about 1903. Sadly, many of the Loetz paper patterns for this period are missing, so we may never know the name of this decor. The vase measures 5-3/4” (14.6cm) tall, and has a polished pontil and fire polished rim.
