In his excellent article on Loetz.com entitled "Pallme-König - Jugendstil's Love Affair With Shape", my friend Alfredo Villanueva-Collado writes of this firm's revolutionary use of organic shapes in its vessels while exploiting "the viscous quality of the glass", and here is an incredible example of combining shape, color, and decoration at the furnace to produce a stunning result. The last photo shows the egg-shaped vessel with a miniature pitcher in the same decor in green. The Passau Museum Collection (PMC IV.296) has an example in this shape that is threaded with contrasting colors beneath. These types of innovations are what set the Bohemian glass houses apart at a time when art nouveau artisans all over the Western world were pushing the boundaries of the imagination in artistic glass expression.
