Here is a recent addition to my collection, a vase by Fritz Heckert in a very Art Nouveau style. It has a beautiful golden iridescence, and is enameled in very soft colors of green, blue and yellow, outlined in gilt. The paper pattern for the shape is shown on page 158 of Stefania Zelasko’s book ‘Fritz Heckert Kunstglas Industrie 1866-1923’ (the middle of image 3) but I am not sure of the actual shape number. I was only able to find one other image example of this décor, which I am showing in image 4. This vase measures 5-1/4” (13.4cm) across by 3-1/4” (8.3cm) tall, has a round finely ground pontil and a fire-polished rim.
