    I still can't tell if there's Onyx or Carneol glass .The colour is darker than pink and lighter than brown ,something between the two ones,but other features point to Loetz.The ornament occurs on other Loetz vases of 'marbled glass ' type.
    The vase is 15 cm tall.

      In Spanish Onix refers to stone that has dark colors over clear ones, and Warren page says

      Onyx - 1887-1888

      White or light green opal ground marbled with brown and green-brown threads, imitating onyx stone. Together with Carneol, the most widespread of Loetz marbled glass. Usually painted with gold and/or enamel, sometimes in Islamic designs.

      Thank you,Sylvia, for the clue.I 've examined all the samples very carefully and finally I came to a conclusion the colour is Pompeii red,not brown or pink.
      I wish you a wonderful 2022:)

      Ivonne, this is a beautiful example! I think the swirls in your vase are particularly nice!
