I took some pictures of my partner's collection this weekend and I cannot help but uploading some of them... specially this one: an amazing Loetz mounted on silver.
I will ask him about the proper data and write them down this evening or tomorrow, as i don't want to give false information.
Will keep you posted on this!

Ok, here is the "good information" about the vase: it was made exclusively for Lobmeyr with shape No. 411-00 in the Tiffany-Art decoration (in moss green and blue) in 1900. The silver mounting was made by the Viennese jewelers Rozet&Fischmeister (this firm is still in business nowadays) and is one of the few times Lobmeyr didn't commision the mountings to Gebrüder Frank.
I guess being made in 1900 explains the shape in a more floral or, as cogito said, a bit Archibald Knox-ish fashion, as it was made before their discovery of the work of Charles R. Mackintosh the Viennese designers emphasized in their characteristic geometric style.
By the way, you can see the amazing pictures of this vase backlit here:
