This Loetz Phänomen Genre 1/4 is the epitome of Art Nouveau style and design. Circa 1900, form # 514, the vase is organic in shape with hints of flower forms and vines, tadpoles and teardrops. Properly signed within the pontil, its one of the most perfectly realized examples I have ever seen. Similar forms of this tadpole decoration are found on Tiffany vases of the same time period. I don't know who copied whom. Formerly owned by Toni Campbell.
