    Silberiris literally means "silver iridescence", and it is a technique that appears on various colors of Loetz glass. All are beautiful, but I think the cobalt variety has become my favorite. Diminutive in size (4"), but huge in aesthetic beauty and tactile richness, it is a happy addition to my growing collection of cabinet vases by Loetz. The line drawing is from Loetz Bohemian Glass 1880-1940, Band II (Musterschnitte)

      I have a number of these blue beauties currently in storage. I would LOVE to get them out, but am waiting for the kiddos to get a bit bigger. You are right, the cobalt is a favorite. Gorgeous!
